Forecast Rates

Goal

How do you validate the impact of ALM Forecast Economic Indicators (EI) on results?
For example:

Economic indicator forecast:
Yearly Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth : 4% (base scenario)
Yearly Inflation rate: 3% (base scenario)
Shock scenario: 10% up and 10% down

Is there a document or any excel validation sheet that can be used to prove the numbers due to above economic indicator shocks?  What is the methodology used for economic indicator computation in OFSAA ALM?  Under forecast rate assumptions, it appears that stress can be applied on currency, interest rate and economic indicators.  So how to use economic indicators under forecast rate assumption n ALM?
