Hi guys,

Back in October on EVE Vegas I made some promises that we were going to put out a Monthly Economic Report that would consist of a lot of graphs and csv data dumps. This is different from Dr. Eyjó's popular QEN's in that there is no written analysis included. There are two reasons for this:


  1. The written part and all the manual work that Dr. Eyjo and CCP Recurve had to do back then was really what killed the reports. They were too time consuming. A lot of this is done in free time outside of business hours, so I wrote some R and SQL scripts that can be executed every month to automatically generate these reports and the data dumps, making the little work in doing so justifiable Big smile

  2. Players who are interested, like mr. Lockefox on the EVE Prosper show to name an example, can take this data and these graphs and publish their own analysis to the EVE community.


A few things have delayed the first release, us moving our data processing infrastructure to a new data center playing a big role, but also the fact that this is really not a part of my job as a Senior Business Analyst, so this goes to the very end of the priority queue. It is no coincidence that most of my releases are done on Fridays (lowest workload during the week). Big smile


In this thread I will gather interesting ideas and improvements to these reports. My list of things to add currently is like this:


  1. Graphs+data on PI
  2. Graphs+data on W-Space


Maybe some time in the future the code that generates these graphs and tables can be put on github so I can take proper bug reports and feature requests.

You can find the Monthly Economic Report for February here.


fixed csv dump for RegionalStats.csv - the original numbers had accidentally been multiplied with the # of solarsystems in each region.

I am eager to review this new data when I get home!

This also looks remarkably like a post that could go in "Market Discussion"..

This is very cool stuff. Thanks for taking the time to make scripts for this.

If you're interested in additional data suggestions, could we have a breakdown of sinks and faucets across bands of space? In particular, I'd be interested in seeing Bounty Prizes and Incursions broken up along highsec, lowsec, and nullsec.

Great stuff!

Also: let's look at incursions and nullsec bounties. I can't believe they are so ahead of agent rewards. Basically what I take from this is that every time people piss and whinge about mission runners they are just talking shite.

I'd like to echo this and ask for a LP breakdown too if possible. By which I mean faction LP stores, not Concord/Drifter Incursion LP.

To be fair, Bounty Prizes includes rat kills across all bands of k-space. While I don't doubt that nullsec makes up a majority of that number, I'd like to see a breakdown across k-space security bands.

Also, they're implementing a fairly catastrophic nerf to nullsec ratting with the capital expansion; this number should decrease significantly in May.

Could you include contracts in some of these #s? A great portion of null economic activity is in the form of contracts.

I am assuming bounties is for all regions, it would be nice to see a low, high and null split.

Wouldn't contracts be included in the export/import volumes already?

To CCP Quant: what are the dark blue bars in the import/export table?

He's interested in WTS contracts, not couriers.

Thanks for explaining that.

To CCP Quant (again), could we get a breakdown of Market Taxes by region, and by systems in Highsec? It'd be good to be able to project how the 5-6% tax increase will play out.
