In the week ahead, the National Bureau of Statistics will make available such reports like the Labour Productivity report, Unemployment and Underemployments watch for the fourth quarter of 2016. The labour productivity report will provide an insight on how real incomes fared in the fourth quarter of 2016. More importantly it will provide an x-ray on how fiscal and monetary policy responses are impacting both productivity and income. Earlier trends suggest it will be likely driven by government spending and improved power generation. Certainly the new unemployment and underemployment figures will partly determine the direction of the misery index as negative trough effects abates.
Here are the happenings expected this week.
