Assessing the Indian Economy Through Alternative Data

Webinar Overview


Global shocks such as the COVID-19 pandemic have reinforced the need for high-frequency data that can provide an insight into the current situation of the economy. The gap in data releases created by most traditional indicators has paved the way for new alternative data that paints a more real-time picture of the economy. In this context, nowcasting models for growth and inflation have gained popularity. CEIC has explored such alternative data, more specifically, the GDP nowcast for India.


During this webinar, ISI Emerging Markets Group's India Economist, Rohini Sanyal, presents how this proprietary indicator works and estimates the present situation of the Indian economy. In addition, we will also be discussing ideas on inflation nowcasting, and how to use daily data for gauging the movement of prices.
