Oxford Economics Cities Data

You can now get access to city-level data & forecasts from Oxford Economics in the application

The cities database from Oxford economics covers nearly 4,500 cities and regions across the world, providing regularly updated data, forecasts and analysis for each location. Macrobond has expanded the partnership with Oxford Economics and can now offer access to three of their cities databases; Asian Cities, European Cities, and North American Cities.


About the data

Forecasts are produced in conjunction with their Global Economic Model. This ensures that developments in the global economy, such as the strength of world trade and investment cycles, and domestic factors such as government policy, have a direct influence on the outlook for city and regional economies.

Most forecasts are updated every quarter to ensure they incorporate the most up-to-date city and regional information, as well as the latest view of future growth prospects.
