It is based on high-frequency data on initial claims for unemployment insurance, Homebase data on hours worked at small firms, the Texas Mobility and Engagement Index, debit/credit card spending, restaurant reservations and the number of drilling rigs. TWEE data are updated every Friday and reflect employment changes during the prior week.
