Public opinion data about consumer buying intentions have proven to be reliable indicators of future economic trends. This demonstrates the advisability of including well-informed public opinion data in public policy planning. This introduction and the three essays that follow are based on a panel on "Taking the Pulse of the Economy: A Fresh Look at Economic Indicators," which was presented at the 1981 Annual AAPOR Conference.
