For an interesting look at key indicators of economic well-being, see this article from TIME Magazine's Brad Tuttle. In it, he refers to this Washington Post graphic/article on an Underwear Index, showing that as times get tough, men wear underwear longer and the sales of this clothing necessity dip.
Tuttle also (in another blog article) highlights the things we buy more of during a recession.
It's another creative indicator set ... but I don't think we'll be using this indicator in our community reports any time soon.
Please keep sending me the interesting metrics you find out there!
