Your Overview of Data Additions

Switzerland KOF Business Tendency Survey, UK EU Referendum, and Press Freedom Index from RSF (Reporters without Borders)

Switzerland: KOF Business Tendency Surveys

Over the past month we’ve added Business Tendency Surveys from the KOF Swiss Economic Institute. The survey covers eight different sectors of the economy as well as their sub-sectors, and breakdowns per company size.
In the chart below, we presented the business situation indicator for each of these eight sectors.

 

United Kingdom: UK EU Referendum

For the UK, we’ve added another poll from the NatCen Social Research. The question posed this time was whether the United Kingdom should remain a member of the EU or leave. The question was asked after the official referendum, held on the 23rd June 2016.

 

World Press Freedom Index

We recently added the Press Freedom Index, compiled by the RSF (Reporters Without Borders). The index is available for 180 countries. More information on the methodology can be found here.
In the scatter chart below, we displayed the Press Freedom Index on the Y-axis together with a World Bank Governance Indicator regarding political stability, and plotted several countries on the chart. Not such a surprise to find a positive relationship between both indicators.
