Hi i'm doing my A2 economics paper soon and I thought I would start this thread so that we could post stats about the UK economy that we could use:

so i've found out thus far that our unemployment rate stands at 7.1% and our inflation rate is 1.7%

if you find any more information just post it on the thread

we can also post news articles so that we're up to date with the recent events!

Hi, I'm doing Edexcel Economics as well. Is it advisable to quote specific figures such as unemployment rate, considering how these figures are constantly changing? :s
