Research on reshoring has received increasing interest in the past literature, however it has not yet been adequately measured in macroeconomic studies. In this note I give an example of how a declining degree of offshoring is not able to indicate reshoring. Moreover, I briefly talk about a new measure of reshoring at the macroeconomic level. That measure can be employed in a variety of research contexts henceforth.
