The Business Cycle Clock (BCC) of Eurostat is a new graphical interface for displaying developments of economic key indicators for Europe as a whole as well as for each single European country. It helps users in their understanding of economic up- and downswings, and of the evolution in time and across countries. It is a visual aid as well as a portal towards European key statistics through its direct links to these statistics.
In April 2009 Eurostat has introduced a new version of the BCC comprising new advanced functionalities as compared to the former BCC.
Below is a screenshot from my comparison of Belgium’s and Turkey’s business cycle starting from 1991 and reaching 2009. You can save the whole animation as an application and take it wherever you go.
