Question ID: 755872
I want 3 things about every country (United Kingdom, United State and
United Arab Emirates). The data are the GDP, The oil income (That mean
Oil price* Oil production) and the Stock Market Index. That data
should be from 1972 until at least 2003, I prefer that until 2005.
I hope that I get the data in Excel sheet. Every sheet mean a country
(That mean we need 3 sheet in Excel file) and every sheet has 4 column
(Year, GDP, Oil income and Stock Market Index)

I was able to find data on oil production for the 3 countries from
1973 instead of 1972. Oil income is not mentioned in any historical
series I found, but it can be estimated, as you mention, by
multiplying the average oil price in a given year by the production in
that year. However, I wasn't able to find any data at all on the UAE
Stock Exchange or GDP.

If this is acceptable for you, please let me know and I'll build the
Excel file without including those series.

Best regards,

That is good, but I have some inquiries:
1- Do you fiend the "average oil price in a given year" for all years?
2- Did you find the Stock Market Index for USA and UK?

If yes, please prepare the Excel file like this:

2 Sheets for USA and UK.
every sheet has:
(year),(GDP),(Oil production),(Oil Price),(Stock Market index)

Hello sulimanss,
Regarding your inquiries:

1 - Yes, I was able to find the average oil price for all years since 1972

2 - There is problem with the stock market index for UK. There are
several stock market indices for both the US and UK. The most
important one for the UK (and the one that has the longest history)
dates back only to 1984. The leading US stock market indices, however,
are available since 1972 or earlier.

If this is OK, I'll prepare the Excel sheet for you.

Best regards,

I tried the two sites you mentioned. Unfortunately, I still was unable
to find data on any UK stock market index prior to 1984.

You can download from the following link the Excel sheet with the data I found:

Notice that there are several stock market indices in the US and the
UK. I chose the ones that are most frequently used for research: the
S&P 500 index for the US (which tracks 500 large US companies) and the
FTSE 100 for the UK.

Regarding the oil production, notice that it is stated in Thousands of
Barrels *Per Day*. Therefore, if you want to find the yearly "oil
income", you would have to multiply this value by 365 and then by the
oil price. Finally, I supplied two quotes for the Oil Price - the
nominal price and the inflation-adjusted one. Depending on the purpose
of your research, you might want to use either.

I hope this helps! If you have any doubt regarding my answer, please
don't hesitate to request clarification before rating it. Otherwise, I
await your rating and final comments.

Best wishes!
