Economic Indicators is designed to help gauge California's current economic health and performance. Using public data, and with the oversight over our Research Advisory Council, we assembled a database of key economic indicators that are useful for understanding current and future economic conditions.
Our collection of indicators are grouped into categories that reflect how they are experienced in daily life. The dashboard below features eight key metrics that are generally representative of each category for a quick snapshot that's meaningful and relevant to all Californians.
Economic indicators are available for the state, and for regions, counties, and legislative districts when data is available. Detailed explanations for each indicator are available through info icons next to each indicator name. Additional background on the Economic Indicators and the detailed breakdowns in the columns to the right of each Indicator is available here. A complete Methodology and Sources for all the indicators is available here.
