Statistics are essential for making informed decisions

Sound financial and monetary statistics help us make informed decisions. The ECB and national central banks provide official statistics on the health of the economy.

These statistics support all aspects of the ECB's work, including monetary policy, financial stability and banking supervision.

Why do statistics matter?

€8.266 trillion

Total assets of euro area insurance corporations

Total assets of euro area insurers amounted to €8.266 trillion (or 66% of euro area GDP) at the end of the third quarter of 2022, down by 10% compared with the same period in 2021. This decline was mainly the result of devaluations of existing assets.
