Constant Vigilance in Financial Affairs
Hey, I don't know if this is an appropriate place to be asking this, but I'm desperate. I'm a library assistant-- meaning a grad student who helps out at the reference desk-- and I've got a prof who has a question that's totally boggling me. I'm a humanities person, and don't know a whole lot about business and finance. That said, here goes:|
He is seeking five-year forecasts, 2005—2010, for expected global growth rates by industry
He mentioned ISICs, or International Standard Industrial Classifications
He has already spoken to the UN Statistics Division—they offer 2-digit ISIC data for Manufacturing, Mining, and Utilities, reported as a quarterly index (current, not forecasted—but he says this is okay) How would one obtain these reports?
Frankly, I'm at a loss. Help me if you can, and appologies if this is OT.
