OECD forecasts: growth, unemployment, inflation

The OECD published Monday forecasts for growth in leading economies for this year and the next two years, as well as its projections for inflation and unemployment.

Growth figures are the percentage change in real gross domestic product compared with the previous year. The figure in brackets is the OECD's previous forecast made in May.

The unemployment rate is the number of jobseekers as a percentage of the working population.

Inflation is the change in consumer prices compared with the previous year.
