One exceptional feature about the Economic Database is that it includes that extends further back than any other type of data available to subscribers. For example, the data for UK Consumer Prices begins in 1209. Data on currency and wholesale prices stretch back to the 1700s.
Economic variables that directly influence equity and fixed income markets are included in our economic data sets which primarily focus on inflation, the money supply, labor markets, production, and output. Monetary aggregate data for M1, M2, and M3 begin in the 1950s while data on currency in circulation starts in the 1800s. Because of the strong relationship between monetary expansion and inflation, data on consumer prices and producer prices are also included.
During the past decade, many countries have put together estimates on gross domestic product that extend back centuries. Estimates on Gross Domestic Product for Great Britain begin in 1270 and for Sweden in 1690. Actual data begins in 1788 for Australia, in 1789 for the United States and in 1807 for the Netherlands. GDP data are provided for many countries from the 1800s.
Inflation can be analyzed using Wholesale Price Indices, Producer Price Indices, and Consumer Price Indices. Dozens of sub-categories of the price indices are provided so the sectoral factors that contribute to the overall inflation rate can be examined. Monthly inflation data for all major economies are available from the 1920s.
