Melbourne Institute Monthly Bulletin of Economic Trends

Report Description

The Melbourne Institute Monthly Bulletin of Economic Trends provides forecasts of the state of the Australian economy. Variables forecasted include GDP growth, consumption, the unemployment rate, inflation, the 90-day bill rate and the exchange rate. The forecasts are generated using econometric techniques which combine both historical information and forward information contained in, for example, consumer expectations, leading indexes of economic activity, and financial futures. The monthly updates of forecasts for the ensuing four quarters provide information in advance of official quarterly data.
