I am a new user and want to know how to run my data against specific Indicators, that are not listed in the preset Indicator lists provided by DataCast?

After running your first analysis against "all" indicators, complete the following steps:

PLEASE NOTE: It may take about an hour to complete when running your analysis against "all" indicators.

Step 1: Create a Favorites List

  • You will receive a confirmation email once the analysis is complete
  • When you receive the email, go to the View Analysis page and search by filters or keywords to narrow your search; NOTE: you need to search the exact type of indicator you are looking for in sequential order, example: “US Industrial Production,” not “Industrial US Production”
  • Click the Star icon of the corresponding indicator(s) you want to use
  • Click Create New List
  • Name your Favorites List and click Save/Create New List


Step 2: Run Analysis using your Favorites List as your indicator

  • Return to the Datasets page screen
  • Click Run Analysis
  • Click the corresponding dataset you would like to run your Favorites List against
  • Under Indicators select favorites
  • From the new drop down Select From Favorites List choose the group of favorite you wish to run your dataset against
  • Click Run Analysis
  • You will receive a confirmation email once the analysis is complete
  • When you receive the email, go to the View Analysis page and your graph(s) will populate

PLEASE NOTE:  Your previous analysis will still be visible. If you would like only to see the recently-run analysis, please clear your old analysis first.
