    This article reviews the different datings of the French economic fluctuations in the period 1970-2010. The analysis is based on three fundamental problems : the definition, the measure and the method for dating economic cycles. We propose our own chronology by using the three types of fluctuations identified in the literature : the business cycle, the growth cycle and the acceleration cycle. To do this, a non-parametric dating algorithm is employed to the quarterly real GDP series. Finally, the identification of cyclical turning points allows us to illustrate some stylized facts ? in terms of duration, amplitude and shape characteristics ? of French cyclical episodes.
