November traditionally sees our Exec MBAs working on their Global Macroeconomics assignments, so it’s a good time to highlight our resources for country data and analysis.
For country profiles, check out BMI Research and MarketLine Advantage. (Please be aware that off-campus access to BMI requires a username and password – available from MIRC). There are other sources available too, but these would be our favourites and are generally the most comprehensive. Profiles should provide you with an overview of most areas of interest on a country, including a PESTLE analysis or similar.
When it comes to statistics, we would recommend the Data & Forecasting tab within BMI Research or Euromonitor’s Passport to start with. For statistical data that is not available in BMI or Passport, we have various other sources you can try including Datastream, Bloomberg and the UK Data Service. Come and talk to us so we can advise you on the best source.
For a more detailed introduction and some step-by-step instructions for the resources mentioned above, have a read of our guide to Country Statistics and Analysis.
The following posts may also be useful:
- Finding economic data in Passport
- Off-campus access to Euromonitor’s Passport service
- Charting data in BMI Research which covers both raw data and charting.
As always if you require any help in sourcing or downloading country reports or data, please contact MIRC.
