UK Economy Databank | tutor2u Economics

Thoughts often turn to teaching macro in the New Year (or revising it!) and it's always helpful to have up-to-date data to use. I have put together an excel spreadsheet with over 20 data series on the UK economy covering a wide range of metrics including the gini coefficient and output gap.

You can download this for free from the Economics store - simply add it to your cart and checkout for free - the resource (which we'll update periodically) will be in your mytutor2u resources.

The data series in the spreadsheet cover:

  • Actual and Potential GDP
  • Consumer credit
  • Current account of the BoP
  • Economic Inactivity Rate
  • Fiscal balance
  • Gini Coefficient
  • Gross government debt
  • House prices
  • Income per capita in the EU
  • Inflation
  • Labour productivity
  • Mortgage lending
  • Net labour migration
  • Output Gap
  • Per capita income / spending
  • Productivity Gap
  • Real GDP
  • Real Weekly Earnings
  • Savings Ratio
  • Stering versus $ and Euro
  • Trade weighted sterling
  • Unemployment rate
  • Wage Phillips Curve
