Features & Benefits

What you get with Consensus Economics 

  • Consensus Economics is one of the world’s leading international economic survey organizations.
  • Polls are collected from 700 to 1000 economists for views on macroeconomic indicators. Consensus Economics’ panellists come from consultancies, banks, investment firms, universities, and a few manufacturers. Incoming survey responses are processed into a consensus using proprietary software to produce a mean average from the individual responses. The means are updated each month and show the expected outlook, this year and next.
  • There are separate quarterly polls taken for 46 markets, then long term forecasts two to ten years out are produced.
  • Two fee liable Consensus Economics® products are available on Datastream on a pass-through basis: Consensus Forecasts™ compiled from monthly surveys, having projections 1 and 2 years out for 100 countries; and Long-term Forecasts extending out 2 to 10 years, from quarterly surveys of 46 countries.
