Current WISTA edition: connection between truck mileage and industrial production

The Federal Office for Goods Transport (BAG) has developed the truck toll mileage index based on the data from truck toll collection. Can this index complement the short-term economic statistics of the Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) and, especially, can it illustrate a connection between mileage and industrial production?

To examine this question, the BAG and Destatis carried out a cooperation project whose results are described in the article Digitale Prozessdaten aus der Lkw-Mauterhebung – neuer Baustein der amtlichen Konjunkturstatistiken published in the 6/2018 edition of our WISTA scientific journal. Since mid-December 2018, the truck toll mileage index has been published on the Destatis website as an unadjusted value, in a seasonally adjusted form and as a trend. At the same time, it has been integrated in the Business Cycle Monitor.
