Statistics Iceland produces the National economic forecast, which is made by an independent unit within the institution. The National economic forecast is normally published in the spring, summer and winter. The economy is analysed and economic prospects for the medium term assessed. The forecast includes estimates on major economic figures such as GDP growth, investment, inflation and labour market developments. The Research Unit has the same access to Statistics Iceland‘s data as external users and is subject to the same rules on access to information as external users.
