Macroeconomic and sectoral statistics
Macroeconomic and sectoral statistics include a wide range of key statistics for the economy as a whole and for individual sectors, as well as the relationships between them. They are the backbone for economic and financial stability analysis and monitoring the effects of the ECB’s monetary policy on the euro area economy.
These statistics are available for the euro area and, in most cases, all EU countries using comparable statistical methods.
