  2. 2. Figure 1. Repo rate with uncertainty bands Per cent, quarterly averages Source: The Riksbank Note.

The uncertainty bands do not take into account the fact that there may be a lower bound for the repo rate.

There is also uncertainty for the outcomes for GDP, as the figures in the National Accounts are revised several years after the preliminary publication.
