Major Economic Indicators


Where is the Cypriot economy headed? “Major Economic Indicators” are measures of how well the economy is doing. They refer to data, usually at the macroeconomic scale. We provide you with the recent macroeconomic data and update them from time to time.

Real GDP/GDP with Constant Prices


Historical Data the past 10 years. The Great Recession was the worst financial crisis in the United States since the 1929 Depression, from December 2007 to June 2009. The subprime mortgage crisis was the trigger. This pushed a tidal wave of financial and currency turmoil toward Europe from 2009 through 2012. The graph shows clearly that Cyprus was greatly affected since Real GDP (measure of Gross Domestic Production,keeping prices constant) dropped heavily, until 2015 when the Economy started slowly to recover and keep reaching higher and higher level through the years.

Unemployment Rate


Historical Data the past 10 years. Again we see how the tidal wave of financial and currency turmoil toward Europe from 2009 through 2012 has affected Cyprus. The crisis had is peek during the period 2013 -2015. Huge unemployment means businesses closing down, less and less needs satisfied, mortgage loans default and more.

Following recent developments, unemployment rate in Cyprus increased to 7.70 percent in November from 7.30 percent in October of 2019.

Inflation Rate


Historical Data the past 5 years. This data on Inflation show that it was volatile for this period and in critical levels. Inflation rate dropped during the years of crisis with levels below 0. The graph shows an upward trend towards a positive rate. It jumped to 0.7 percent year-on-year in December 2019. The widely considered “healthy” yearly rate is 2.5%.
