What are the PEEIs?

Euro-indicators and Principal European Economic Indicators (PEEIs) provide general economic information on the euro area, European Union and individual Member States. Those statistics aim to describe the economic and labour market situation as well as price developments, which are of particularly high importance for economic and monetary policy.

What kind of information can I find here?

The set of indicators produced by Eurostat covers most of the PEEIs. This set of indicators is complemented by certain monetary and financial indicators produced by the European Central Bank as well as by some economic tendencies surveys produced by the Directorate-General for Economic and Financial Affairs of the European Commission.

The indicators cover the following topics

  • Balance of payments (Foreign direct investments …) 
  • Business and consumer surveys 
  • Industry and services (Industrial production, retail trade, turnover in services ….) 
  • International trade 
  • Labour market (unemployment, labour cost, job vacancies …) 
  • Monetary and financial indicators (Interest rates, exchange rates) 
  • National accounts (GDP, debt & deficit, investments, savings, consumption …)
  • Prices (Inflation rate, house prices …)
