You need to submit one Excel file that contains all your data, graphs, and analysis. as well as the data
sources that you used for each economic variable. An Excel template is provided together with these
guidelines
For all the tasks below only use scatter plot diagrams with quarterly or yearly data for at least 30
years.
1.Plot the real GDP for your country and add an exponential trendline with its equation, which
reflects the potential GDP. Calculate the yearly economic growth rate and highlight periods of
recession and expansions, as well as finding the long run economic growth rate based on the
equation of the exponential trend
2.Plot the inflation rate for your country and add either a linear or exponential trend (whatever you
think fits the data in a better way) with its equation. Analyse briefly your graph and equation,
highlighting any connections between inflation and GDP during periods of recession and expansions
3.Plot M1 and M2for your country, adding either a linear or exponential trend (whatever you think
fits the data in a better way), and calculate and analyse both the yearly growth rate for these
variables as well as the total average growth rate
4.Plot the growth rate of M1 (x-axis) and the inflation rate (y-axis) and add a trend line with its
equation. Analyse your graph and equation based on the economic theories covered in class.
5.Plot the economic growth rate (x-axis) and the inflation rate (y-axis) and add a trendline with its
equation. Analyse your graph and equation based on the economic theories covered in class.
Data Sources You are responsible to find and download your own data over a period of at least 30
years but use more data if available. However, you can only use the following data sources (another
sources will not be considered as valid or accurate and you will be penalized in your final mark for
this project): FRED https: //fred.stlouisfed.org/
-World Bankhttps://data.worldbank.org/
-OECD websitehttps://data.oecd.org/Your selected countrys central bank or statistics authority website.
Note: you need to clearly mention the source of your data (with the website link) for each economic
variable. Failing to provide the data source will decrease your final mark in this project
