Abstract

Los indicadores de actividad económica son utilizados para medir el comportamiento de una economía cuando ningún otro tipo de indicador, como el producto interno bruto, puede proporcionar información sobre el estado de la economía de forma actualizada. En este documento se realiza una revisión de la literatura nacional e internacional sobre la construcción de indicadores de actividad económica. Adicionalmente, se ofrece un resumen de la metodología más utilizada en la construcción de índices de actividad económica, el modelo factorial dinámico (MFD) y sus diferentes tipos de estimación, resaltando las ventajas y desventajas. Finalmente, se presenta el método utilizado en la construcción del índice mensual de actividad económica para el Valle del Cauca (IMAE).
