Monetary aggregate indices presented are Narrow money (M1) and Broad money (M3). They are calculated as averages of the monthly figures. For all countries which do not provide data corresponding to the average for the month, estimates of monthly levels have been made using end of previous and current month figures. The annual and quarterly figures are then calculated as averages of the estimated monthly data and the indices are
Access time series of immediate (overnight), short-term (3 month interbank rate), and long-term (10 yr bonds) interest rates for OECD countries and major non-member economies. The series are updated continuously.
The Standardised Confidence Indicators (for manufacturing industry and consumers) are confidence indicators comparable across countries. Comparability has been achieved by careful selection of national indicators, and by smoothing, centring, and amplitude adjusting these series. The series are updated continuously.

With 22% of the national population (11.2 million inhabitants), the Gauteng city-region is the largest and richest region in South Africa, contributing to one-third of national GDP. The area encompasses a series of connected cities, including Johannesburg and the national capital of Tshwane (formerly Pretoria), that function as a single, integrated region. Gauteng has been South Africa’s growth engine: for every additional 1% growth in population in the province, 1.6% is added to its contribution to national growth, implying higher productivity than in other parts of the country. Nevertheless, the city-region’s growth potential is constrained by deep socio-economic challenges, including high unemployment (26.9%) and low productivity growth. Its rapid demographic and economic development has also reinforced the spatial segregation instituted under apartheid.
Against the backdrop of South Africa’s achievements since the fall of apartheid, this Review evaluates measures to position economic development policy and to confront economic inequality in Gauteng. The issues of adequate housing as a catalyst of economic development and a vehicle for socioeconomic integration, transport mobility and public service delivery are examined in detail. The Review also assesses the economic growth potential of the manufacturing and green sectors, as well as governance issues, focussing on the potential of intergovernmental collaboration in advancing a cross-cutting regional approach for Gauteng.
