© tadamichi /

Eurostat has published today the indicators of the Macroeconomic Imbalance Procedure (MIP) Scoreboard.

The MIP Scoreboard consists of fourteen indicators relevant for the early detection of existing or emerging macroeconomic imbalances at EU Member State level. It provides statistical support to the annual Alert Mechanism Report released by the European Commission at the start of the European Semester 2023. The Alert Mechanism Report identifies those Member States for which in-depth analyses are required, based on an economic reading of the scoreboard indicators, complemented by other auxiliary indicators.

The full data series are available on the regularly updated MIP dedicated section of the Eurostat website.
