The average hours worked per week by production workers in manufacturing industries tend to lead the business cycle and is a good example of a leading indicator. Question 1 But where do I get this data ? Question 2 - Is it this ? If it is this then should I assume itâs a total line 5 and 6 ( Manufacturing hours and overtime ) http://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.t... Question 3 â Can I get a link to historical data for this indicator ? As far as back as possible ? Question 4 âCan I get a link to data for India and other countries as well because employers usually adjust work hours before increasing or decreasing their workforce.
