Increasing population and tourism data
Over the last two weeks, we’ve added population and tourism data – from local sources – for a broad range of countries.
In the coming days, the headline series will be accessible as a new branch of the Economics – By Concept view of the database. In case it’s been a while since you used this entry point, the by concept view provides you with an easy way to perform cross-country comparisons. You can either access harmonized data from international sources, such as ECB or IMF, or headline series (what refer to as concepts) from national sources.
The two charts below are examples of the most recent additions
- Foreign travelers, arrivals in South Africa: in this chart we look at the monthly pattern of tourism since 1992, and comparing it with the current year.
- South Korea, Population: in this chart we look at the projections from Statistics Korea, as well as projections, based on fertility variants, from the United Nations, presented as a stripe.
For Australia, we’ve added data on Household Income, per quintile or percentile. In the bar chart below, we take a look at the weekly gross income in 2015 per percentile, and compare it to the growth rate for the past 10 years.
We have expanded our sources for surveys in the Czech Republic, with consumer and business surveys from the Czech National Bank. In the chart below, we looked at labour shortage (as a factor limiting production) and compared it to unfilled vacancies.
