Earlier release of European GDP growth rates

Video announcement of the early GDP release

From 29 April 2016 onwards, Eurostat will publish preliminary flash estimates of quarterly GDP for the euro area and for the European Union at 30 days after the end of the quarter, compared with 45 days previously. This means that both the European and US GDP growth rates will now be released at around the same date, simplifying access to high quality data for people interested in world-wide macro-economic statistics.
