Insituit provides insights on growth metrics for regional economies and identifies how countries are performing months in advance of national accounts.
Measure quarterly and annual growth estimates of Real GDP and monthly year over year GDP change. Insituit derives Real GDP change from NOAA VIIRS satellite imagery of national night light intensity and density using proprietary regression models.
Hedge funds, commodity traders, fundamental traders
- Make more strategic trading decisions by having a deeper, earlier understanding of national Real GDP. The GDP Night Lights report provides Real GDP well in advance of income measures from national accounts and provides an early signal of country growth changes.
- Combine data on changes in night lights with data on measured income growth to improve estimates of true income growth or create composite estimates with lights growth and national accounts data to improve the accuracy of your models.
