What is it about?
In this paper we propose a data-driven approach for the construction of economic indicators. We make use of survey-based agents’ expectations about a wide range of economic variables to derive an empirically-generated indicator of economic activity.

Why is it important?
This methodology is particularly indicated to generate indicators from large data sets. By means of evolutionary algorithms we derive mathematical functional forms that combine survey data to approximate a target variable.
