Economic Data: The Data Explorer and Touchstone Blog
Here are links to two freshly developed sources of data on the UK economy.
James Trimble has been developing The Data Explorer in his free time. The page presents line charts giving a quick overview of long term data for indicators such as GDP, unemployment and inflation. A handy resource for students and teachers and one to keep an eye on as it develops. The Data Explorer Dashboard can be found here
The Touchstone blog. This is an informal blog by TUC economics staff about policy issues that are in the news and their data dashboard can be found here
