(a) TSSOS Future Wages and Benefits; Percent Reporting Decreases for Texas, Percent, Not Seasonally Adjusted (TSSOSFWGSDUAMFRBDAL)
TSSOS Future Wages and Benefits reports the likely direction of wages and benefits for the service sector over the six months ahead for the state of Texas. Survey responses are used to calculate an index for each indicator. Each index is calculated by subtracting the percentage of respondents reporting a decrease from the percentage reporting an increase. When the share of firms reporting an increase exceeds the share of firms reporting a decrease, the index will be greater than zero, suggesting the indicator has increased over the prior month. If the share of firms reporting a decrease exceeds the share reporting an increase, the index will be below zero, suggesting the indicator has decreased over the prior month. An index will be zero when the number of firms reporting an increase is equal to the number of firms reporting a decrease.
