Source(s) for historical economic data

Hi All,

I'm looking for sources of historical economic data - primarily BoE interest rates, UK inflation (RPI, CPI), US non-farm payrolls, Fed rates and US inflation (CPI).

As well as the actual numbers, I'm also looking for the expected numbers.

Thanks

Don

Re: Source(s) for historical economic data

The historical data you're looking for is available directly from the organizations that publish it, i.e. the Bank of England, the ONS, the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Fed. Expected numbers, on the other hand, is a totally different matter. Apart from Bloomberg and Reuters, I don't know of any organizations that compile ecoomic forecasts.

The St Louis Fed Economic Research Site.
Best single place to look for US economic data.
