What are the Euro indicators?

Euro indicators provide general economic information on the euro area, European Union and individual Member States. They contain timely, high quality, monthly and/or quarterly indicators, and are issued simultaneously with data releases according to a set calendar, planned a year in advance. The Commission and the European Central Bank use them for the analysis of the euro area economy and they are of particular interest to economic journalists and the financial markets.

Most Euro indicators are produced by Eurostat. They are complemented by certain monetary and financial indicators produced by the European Central Bank and by data from economic tendencies surveys produced by the Directorate-General for Economic and Financial Affairs of the European Commission.

What kind of information can I find here?

The indicators cover the following topics:

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

Euro indicators are disseminated monthly and/or quarterly. Data are presented on the basis of the most relevant economic classification, different evaluations and elaborations, such as seasonal adjustment.
