The Bank of Israel's Composite State of the Economy Index increased by 0.31 percent month-on-month in February 2019, easing from an upwardly revised 0.37 percent growth in the previous month, central bank data showed. The index was negatively impacted by a slowdown in both manufacturing inputs (0.7 percent vs 3.1 percent in January) and job vacancy rate (3.5 percent vs 3.6 percent). On the other hand, goods exports rose faster (11.0 percent vs 0.4 percent) while import of consumer goods rebounded (3.4 percent vs -1.4 percent in January). Leading Economic Index in Israel averaged 0.35 percent from 1975 until 2019, reaching an all time high of 1.11 percent in May of 1991 and a record low of -0.65 percent in February of 1980.
