Employment Cost Index

An 

Index

 used to monitor inflation. The 

Employment Cost Index

 measures the relative changes in wages, 

Benefit

, and bonuses for a specific group of occupations. The reason the 

ECI

 is thought to be an 

Indicator

 of inflation is that as wages increase, the added cost is often passed to consumers shortly thereafter in the form of higher prices (which is inflation). In 

Combination

 with the 

Productivity

 report, the 

ECI

 can reveal whether the increased cost of labor is justified or not. The 

ECI

 is released at 8:30 am EST on the 

Last

 Thursday of January, April, July, and November.
