It is a common practice to create indexes to summarize complex information, in this case about the economy. The drawback of indexes is that they sometimes hide the variation of the information they are based on. This visualization presents the evolution of both the index across time and its underlying indicators. For example, it is easy to see how the decrease of the economic outlook has been followed by a reduction of the number of hours worked in the private sector.

Examination of the text shows that this is not the case.

The display is very rich and is successful at grabbing’s the reader’s attention by offering an appealing combination of related data.
