ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the economic indicators of Great Britain in 2006. CPI annual inflation--the government's target measure--rose slightly to 2% in February, compared with 1.9% in January. The largest upward effect came from recreation and culture. The only significant downward effect came from transport as air fares fell in February for the second month in succession. The unemployment rate was 5% in January 2006, down 0.1 % on December 2005, but still up from 4.7% on the previous quarter. Online job recruitment activity, as measured by the Monster Employment Index, rose by 10 points to 116 in February compared with the previous month. More than 33,000 jobs were created across the country's 21 key industries in February, but this was down 9,197, by 22%, from February 2005.
