What can you do with Country Data?

EIU Country Data is an extremely comprehensive database of economic indicators. Rigorously researched by economists at the Economist Intelligence Unit, it's the definitive product for economic research. Access this dataset via Bureau van Dijk's platform for full manipulation and analysis options.

  • Look at multiple variables for a country – market size, inflation rates, debt levels, private consumption and interest rates
  • Compare criteria across a range of countries

Content

EIU Country Data covers 320 series per country. The variables are divided into the following seven major categories:

  • Gross domestic product
  • Fiscal and monetary indicators
  • Demographics and income
  • Foreign payments
  • External debt stock
  • External debt service
  • External trade

You can look at individual countries in great detail - to see inflation rates, market size, debt, private consumption, interest rates etc. You can also compare economic criteria across your choice of regions or benchmark country performance against regional statistics.

Country Outlooks, which are textual summaries of the EIU’s short term political and economic forecasts, are also included in EIU Country Data.

Compare regional aggregates to look at the performance of a region as a whole – or use them as a benchmark.
