Abstract:     
A new index of the U.S. high-tech sector - drawing upon a range of technology-specific data - has the potential to offer a more timely assessment of economic activity than has been possible to date. The index suggests that while the tech sector has rebounded from its poor performance in the 2000-01 tech bust, it has not resumed its rapid expansion of the late 1990s.
