One of the quickest and easiest ways to find global economic statistical data from a range of authoritative sources is to use Passport. Passport, a Euromonitor product, has both quarterly and annual historical data going back in some cases to 1977 and also provides several years’ worth of forecasts for some economic indicators e.g. GDP, inflation, population, foreign direct investment to name but a few. Information is obtained from national statistics offices, governmental and official sources.
Macroeconomic data is most easily accessed via the ‘Economies’ option on the Passport top menu bar.
From the Economies dashboard, find the ‘Search all categories’ menu (highlighted above) and select ‘Economies’ from the dropdown list. This will take you to the Euromonitor ‘category tree’ where you can either search for or browse to the data you require.
Within the Category Tree, you can drill down within data categories for more specific datasets. Any heading with a blue ‘+’ icon next to it has further subcategories to explore. (These are definitely worth exploring). Click on the ‘+’ to open these.
Select the category or categories you require using the check-boxes and click on ‘Next’ (at the bottom right) to choose your country or countries in the same fashion. Drill down as far as you can before checking any boxes – this will ensure you get the level of data you require.
Once you have completed your options, click on ‘Next’ and select your countries in a similar fashion. Choose from individual countries or select a pre-defined group, such as MINT, from the ‘Geographies’ dropdown menu on the right.
Once you have added all your countries, click on ‘Search’ to run the search. As always Passport displays results under two tabs. You will find data in the left-hand tab, under ‘Statistics’.
Click on any option to view an individual dataset – or on ‘View Full Data Set’.
