Statistical Data Warehouse (SDW)
About the SDW
The Statistical Data Warehouse is the ECB's online data delivery service for statistics.
It is intended for a wide range of users of euro area statistics, ranging from one-time visitors searching for a specific most recent statistic or a single data series to more frequent users such as market participants, journalists, analysts and researchers. It features robust and simple-to-use interfaces that allow users to quickly find, display, chart and download euro area data, including in some cases national breakdowns.
Several access methods tailored to different user needs are provided. These include
- simple interactive graphs on the homepage,
- a powerful search engine,
- hierarchical navigation and
- real-time update of tables in the ECB's statistical publications (the “Statistics” section of the Economic Bulletin).
Data baskets give users the possibility to customise their access to the statistics.
The data and their descriptions are presented in a harmonised and integrated way, thus ensuring a better understanding and accessibility of ECB statistics. Standard transformations allow for basic analysis of the data.
Data can be easily downloaded for common software packages in XML and text formats, and subscribed series can be received via email and http (SDW notification service).
