We’ll also be taking a look at an OECD addition, the PISA Global Education Survey. To see the full list of data, with links to the application, scroll to the end of the page.

China: NDRC targets for economic indicators

France: Airbus Exports

The name says it all in the case of this addition. The data was sourced from the French customs office and covers the value and number of Airbus sold per month. In the chart below we’re looking at a simple arithmetic calculation of the average value per Airbus sold, between 2004 and 2017, using these two time-series. As a bonus, when you click on the chart to open the document in Macrobond, you’ll find an extra chart showing the use of the slice functionality.

Turkey: Poll Data for the Constitutional Referendum

You can now keep track of the polls regarding the constitutional referendum in Turkey, to be held on the 16th of April, 2017. The question at hand is whether or not to grant the president of Turkey, Erdogan, sole executive, legislative and judiciary power over the country. At this point, there is less than a month to go, with 12% of those polled still undecided. As you’ll see in the chart below, the latest data shows that the Nos are leading for now, but by a tight margin of 48,6% to 45.5%.
