Japan : All Industry Index  
Definition
The All Industry Index takes a reading of activity in the tertiary index combined with activity in the construction, agricultural and fisheries industries, the public sector and industrial output. This index is considered a close approximation for gross domestic product growth as measured by industrial and service sector output.

Why Investors Care
The all industry index evaluates the monthly change in overall production by all sectors of the Japanese economy. The index includes the tertiary index which is released a few days before the all industry plus the construction, agricultural and fisheries industries, the public sector and industrial output. The index closely follows Japanese GDP and overall growth figures, providing insight into current levels of Japanese economic expansion.
