Tracking the Recession Pivot Point

RIWI has begun tracking the recession pivot point in real-time by asking a unique random cohort of the population each day whether they or their immediate family members or close friends have lost their jobs in the past two weeks. RIWI is collaborating with labor economist Dan Alpert on this unique datafeed.

These data are available in real-time in both the US and Canada (and other jurisdictions upon request).

Because RIWI uses a unique technology to access those who wouldn’t answer a conventional poll, the tech has successfully predicted a range of “surprises” that didn’t show up in mainstream data sources or public polling, including US and global elections and official jobs data.
