Indicators influence election
NEW YORK (AP) — During the past wee,k various statistical indicators pointed to a less than buoyant economy, but perhaps of even greater significance they influenced greatly the election race The index of leading economic indicators fejl sharply Wholesale prices .rose The unemployment rate remained high Th,e index of indicators is ^generally cp|i sidered one o/ the most significant barometers of economic activity When it is high and rising it suggests fair ecpijonnc weather, wften falling itJEoretetysstorms But the mdex pf leading indicators quivers m,uch, much more than most of us realize so gr,eatly tp fact that the chche all over {the Jot /can almost be applied When ,it fs announced each month it is read by many people as a rigidly set figure, com puter accurate and infallible It psn t It is revised each month month after month The reading for the same month might undergo a dozen monthly revisions The wholesale price index is not subject to so many revisions but it is open to the same amount of questioning Is •the index accurate' Is it meaningful' Some economists baye faith in this index, but Prof facfrarQ fluggles, Yale University economist, isn t among them He maintains it is "quite meaningless ' He suggests it is a concoction rather than an indicator Why should Reggies have such a low op....on7 Because, under government contract he has analyzed the index and, in fact, 15 working to develop a new statistical formula to > replace it The unemployment rate also has its critics Does it overstate unemployment 9 The Commonwealth of Massachusetts maintains it does, and that as a consequence its economy has been damaged by, among other things, higher borrowing costs Does it understate unemployment 9 Sc,or*s pf municipalities, including ,the City of St LQUIS, says yes Tjjey feel cheated because, they say, the ufldJersJa.ted figures deprive funds Js the jobless total an accurate count7 Jt isp t eyep # count Few people reauzettiat it results from a small sample that is then put through a computer It is a formulation rather than a count It is weighted, averaged, adjusted— and also corrected, but not until after theend of the year Why do we pay so much attention to the numbers? Well, they are indicators Economists generally believe Washington s statistics are the best in the world But professional economists also understand that figures can mislead Much of the public farte to possess such understanding, and therefore often assumes these numbers to be perfect Didn t they come qut of the computer 7 Candidates also find the numbers make campaign material President Ford, who is now being hurt by the numbers, relied heavily on them earlier in the campaign to suggest that he was moving the economy ahead Jimmy Carter has exploited them too Question Should a president be elected by the numbers'
