Main Economic Indicators

The OECD's monthly Main Economic Indicators publication is an important source of comparable key economic statistics for the OECD member countries, a number of non-member countries and the Euro and other country groupings


The Main Economic Indicators database contains the full time span of historical data for all time series in the publication together with a large number of unpublished series for labour, balance of payments, surveys of business and consumer confidence, and composite leading indicators. The database currently contains around 40,000 time series with data beginning as early as 1960.


EconData updates the Main Economic Indicators database daily.


In dX format the database matches the layout of the printed publication and contains all series at the highest frequency (monthly or quarterly) appearing in the publication.
