I have blogged previously about accessing economic data through the Library’s subscription to Global Market Information Database (GMID). You now have another option for quick access to economic data, this time from Marketline’s Country Statistics database.
This is a part of the Marketline subscription that is often missed, because it is not accessible from the main search or browse functions. Instead, you need to access the separate Country Statistics product through the database menu.
If you’ve used GMID for economic data before then the process for making a request will be familiar to you. First select the country or countries you are interested in, then the economic indicators. For most indicators you will have a choice of the absolute value or % growth. Finally you can choose to view the results as a table, which can be downloaded to Excel, or analyse the results and create various charts from the data.
Warwick staff and students can access Marketline from Encore.
