Historical Data and Monthly Updates

Most of the survey data from each of our four regional publications (as well as Energy and Metals Consensus Forecasts™ and Foreign Exchange Consensus Forecasts™) can be received in Excel spreadsheet format by email under license from Consensus Economics. The historical spreadsheet services include Consensus Forecasts™ from our previous monthly surveys dating back as far as October 1989, plus a one-year subscription to the future monthly spreadsheet updates, including a mailed hard copy of the publication each month. These four services (below) allow back-testing of forecast accuracy and modelling of country indicator expectations.

Consensus Forecasts™ - G-7 and Western Europe - Monthly since October 1989;

Asia Pacific Consensus Forecasts™ - Monthly since January 1995;

Eastern Europe Consensus Forecasts™ - Bi-monthly (alternate months) between May 1998 and April 2007 and monthly thereafter; and

Latin American Consensus Forecasts™ - Bi-monthly (alternate months) between March 1993 and April 2001 and monthly thereafter.

A flexible TrendCharts feature enabling easy graphic display of the trends in our Consensus Forecasts™ over time has been added to each of the regional spreadsheet services beginning in late 2006.


Each Monthly file includes:


An important feature of the spreadsheet format is that the corresponding variables for each country are placed in the same column in each monthly spreadsheet, while the consensus figures for defined variables always appear in the same row. The date of the survey is also shown.

It is important to note, however, that the Significant Changes in the Consensus feature (page 2 of the hard copy publication), the special surveys (which begin on page 3), the summary table (back page of the hard copy), all historical data outturns, comparison forecasts, charts and text commentaries are not included in the spreadsheets. Variables covered for some countries may change occasionally, often due to country practice (a record of these is available to subscribers).

Excel spreadsheet data is delivered to clients of this service by e-mail on the day a publication is released. Further details can be obtained by contacting Consensus Economics. Prices (which include a hard copy subscription) are as shown below. Certain UK and European Union subscribers to these services may also be charged Value Added Tax.
