Beijing, June 29, 2010
The Conference Board Leading Economic Index
(LEI) for China increased 0.3percent in April to 145.0 (2004 = 100), following a 1.2 percent increase in March and a 0.4 percentincrease in February. Three of the six components contributed positively to the index in April.The LEI for China was previously reported to have increased 1.7 percent in April but has been revisedto correct a calculation error: the Total Floor Space Started component contributed a negative value,minus 0.1 percent in April, rather than a positive 1.3 percent as originally reported. The correction hasproduced a lower value and monthly change in the LEI, but does not affect the outlook or the historicalcyclical behavior of the index. Only the values of the April LEI for China itself and the Total Floor SpaceStarted component have changed. The correction does not affect any of the other LEI components, nordoes it impact
