ICOMIA’s 2016 Quarterly Economic Statistics Report by Country: Edition Three is now available.

The report is free for members of the National Marine Manufacturers Association.

Edition Three covers the first three quarters of this year and contains information about economic development, including inflation rates, economic growth, car registrations/sales, consumer confidence, producer price index and the Big Mac Index in 46 countries across the world.

ICOMIA said improved features of Edition Three include a better layout; new categories, such as the Big Mac Index; and the addition of Colombia, Indonesia, Lebanon, Macau, Malaysia, Mexico, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.

The data are intended to allow tracking of economic performance in specific countries. Therefore, it is advisable not to compare different countries’ statistics because different indexes often are used because of different national practices and available sources, ICOMIA said.
