The Economic Outlook provides CMIE's view on where the Indian economy stands and where it is likely headed. This view is derived from a careful and continuous monitoring of all new data releases. New data releases are analysed in real-time in the context of the historical trends and in the context of other current data releases. Economic Outlook therefore provides a comprehensive and integrated view of the Indian economy.
Every data release is dealt with at three levels - Tidings, which is a quick delivery of the facts, Insights, which is a deeper and contextual analysis of the new data release and, Outlook, which is a forward looking essay that describes the implications of the new data release.
The core strength of the Economic Outlook is the underlying database. The service provides full access to this database. Time series on more than a 100,000 indicators are provided in multiple frequencies and in the form of several derivations. The full set of indicators including all frequencies and derivations add up to nearly a million time-series. All these are presented in intelligently laid-out tabulations.
Tabulations are supported with readymade graphics and also a graphing tool. The data can be easily downloaded into spreadsheets or as csv files.
CMIE's statistical forecasts are provided in separate tabulations.
Economic Outlook also provides scanned images of the original source documents used in building the time-series.
The Economic Outlook replaces two of CMIE's earlier services - the Economic Intelligence Service and Business Beacon.
