The World Economic League Table is coveted for its insightful analysis and long-range forecasts that give confidence to business decision making.
The World Economic League Table 2017 comprises a report covering 180 countries with forecasts and rankings to 2030 and a separate database with data to 2030 for all 180 countries.
The World Economic League Table 2017 is the most comprehensive league table of global economies with forecasts for 180 countries to 2030 – published by Global Construction Perspectives and the renowned Centre for Economics and Business Research.
The World Economic League Table 2017 is sponsored by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) which is the world’s largest and most influential professional body for construction management and leadership with almost 50,000 members in more than 100 countries.
This year’s World Economic League Table has been produced at a time of significant change for the world’s economies and for the construction and engineering sector which is important to growth, productivity and employment for economies in both the developing and developed parts of the world.
The World Economic League Table 2017 gives a ranking of the world’s developed and emerging economies by Gross Domestic Product (GDP) measured in US dollars at market prices to 2030.
In the World Economic League Table 2017 the Centre for Economics and Business Research takes responsibility for all economic forecasts that it has prepared and Global Construction Perspectives takes responsibility for the outlook on construction and infrastructure which it has prepared along with other views on construction and infrastructure.
To ensure comparability, national output in ‘current US dollars at market exchange rates’ is used – this is a measure of real money rather than statistical constructs such as purchasing power parity or inflation-adjusted prices.
The World Economic League Table 2017 is constructed from long-term country-specific forecasts accounting for virtually 100% of world GDP and also looks at near-term developments to seize upon important events.
The Report provides analysis and tables for each country in an accessible format.
A separately available database provides detailed annual data and forecasts to 2030 for GDP, inflation and exchange rates in Excel format for analysis. Data is provided in US dollars in constant prices as well as current prices and includes local currency growth in fixed prices and levels in current prices. Historical data from IMF World Economic Outlook is included for reference.
News coverage of the World Economic League Table published in previous years by the Centre for Economics and Business Research is covered by a large number of leading international press and media including Financial Times, BBC, Sky News, Forbes, The China Post, Die Welt, Le Figaro, The Times and many thousands of news broadcasters globally.
