Our Global Scenarios Service explores the implications of key risks to the world economy, enabling better decision-making.
Five year forecasts and scenarios
Coverage of 85 individual economies, including advanced economies and key emerging markets, as well as the Eurozone and regional aggregates.
Access to a databank that allows users to quickly build queries with complete flexibility and view the data in tables, charts, and maps.
Reports that describe the baseline forecast and how each scenario develops, together with dashboards to help visualise the headline results.
Forecasts cover key macro and financial variables, including output, spending, employment, inflation, interest rates, balance of payments, and government finances.
