    Abstract

    [eng] This paper presents the building of a leading indicator for the French economy and its possible use. The aim of the indicator is to predict the GDP growth for the current quarter and for the next quarter. The leading indicator includes monthly information and can be estimated each month. Two sets of variables enter the indicator : a real block containing coincident and one quarter leading series, and a financial block including series leading for at least three quarters. Contributions of each set are analysed to determine the role of the different factors. Then the indicator is used for a retrospective forecast. The results seem significant and give to the tool operational properties which nevertheless will have to be tested forecast after forecast. JEL Codes : E32, E37 [fre] Cet article présente les principes de construction d'un indicateur avancé pour l'économie française, ainsi que son utilisation possible. L'objectif est de prévoir la croissance du PIB pour le trimestre en cours et le trimestre à venir. L'indicateur avancé incorpore des informations conjoncturelles à fréquence mensuelle et peut être ainsi calculé chaque mois. Deux blocs de variables entrent dans la composition de l'indicateur : un bloc réel contenant des variables coïncidentes et avancées d'un trimestre, et un bloc financier regroupant des variables avancées d'au moins trois trimestres. Les contributions de chaque bloc sont analysées pour apprécier le rôle des différents facteurs. Puis l'indicateur est mis en œuvre dans un exercice rétrospectif de prévision. Les résultats paraissent significatifs et confèrent à l'instrument un caractère opérationnel qui devra toutefois être éprouvé au fil des prévisions.
