To gauge the U.S. economy’s health without relying on flawed monthly releases from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Bureau of Economic Analysis, TrimTabs collects data on real-time tax collections and maintains a proprietary macroeconomic index.

U.S. Treasury Tax Collections

We track U.S. Treasury data on withheld income and employment tax collections, non-withheld individual tax collections, and corporate tax collections on a daily basis.

Proprietary analysis of withholdings enables us to estimate wage and salary growth in near real time and employment growth on a monthly basis.

TrimTabs Macroeconomic Index

The TrimTabs Macroeconomic Index is a correlation-weighted composite index based on weekly leading macroeconomic variables. The index has historically done an excellent job at identifying major economic inflection points.
