NOTE: This table shows the comparative patterns of peaks and troughs (i.e., turning points) in the economy and the two TSI indexes over time, and is meant to illustrate the comparative patterns among the series while providing information on the exact dates of the peaks and troughs. Not every peak or trough in any one series has a corresponding turning point in the other series.
