Data Questions

Complete Intelligence is focused on relevant, high-quality forecast data for corporates, governments and small / mid-sized firms. Our data is collected, cleaned, and forecast through a statistically-valid process to help our clients make informed and timely decisions. Our interface is clean, clear and concise. We don’t bog our customers down with unnecessarily confusing interfaces, ill-informed or overly-wordy narratives, or hard-coded “forecasts” that are manually adjusted so they’re not too far off of the “consensus number.” We have a real model. We do real forecasts. And we want to help you make better decisions.

Our data comes primarily from publicly available sources: multilateral agencies, national statistical agencies, market and exchange closing data, and industry associations.

We reforecast all of our data once a month. This is a complete reforecasting process, wherein we reexamine and reconfigure our algorithms for every data series on a monthly basis to reflect the very small and incremental changes that occur in the world economy and markets each month.

Values are current US dollar values for the month and year reported.

Multilateral organizations may track some nations in ways that may be confusing for users unfamiliar with the individual methodologies. Norway, for example, is tracked by the United Nations as "Norway, Svalbard and Jan Mayen". Switzerland is tracked by the UN as "Switzerland, Liechtenstein". In these cases, we have simplified the names to "Norway" and "Switzerland" and may do so for other countries where no other simplified option is available.

We are a data firm. There is a lot of economic and industry commentary available Bloomberg, CNBC, Reuters, Yahoo, Google, IMF, and World Bank. To be honest, we don’t believe more reading is what you need. We believe you need better data.

Of course we do. Just let us know the data series and countries you would like as well as the format you prefer. Contact us here and let us know the name of your organization, how you will use the data, and how we can contact you (no Google, Hotmail or generic email IDs, please).

Redistribution and sublicensing of Complete Intelligence data is not covered by our standard terms of use. If your firm is interested in redistributing or sublicensing our data, please contact our customer service team here.

Yes, you can access the data and export it in Excel-friendly CSV format.

Our commodity prices are based on futures contract pricing. In order to account for all active futures contracts, we calculate a “continuous futures” price, which is generally similar to the way stock splits are handled for equity market calculations.

We use continuous futures to eliminate jumps in price between consecutive futures contracts. To calculate continuous futures, we identify the difference between the back contract settle price and the front contract settle price on each roll date. This difference is added to the back contracts. The entire historical series is not adjusted for the new ratio to avoid distortions of actual historical data.

The correlation listed next to each asset represents the relationship of that particular asset with the economic indicators that we test as outlined in our methodology. It works as an indicator to the certainty of our forecasts. The range varies from -1 to +1. So, +1 is a perfect fit, -1 is a perfect inverse fit and 0 is not a fit. The closer it is to 0, the lower the ability to forecast accurately. Correlation only identifies possible connections between variables; it does not prove or disprove any causal relationships.
