With most of the old EU Member States participating in economic and monetary union since 1999, infra-annual economic statistics for the euro area and the European Union as a whole have gained and will continue to gain even more operational importance for collective and private decision-making. The momentum of the EU economies and most notably the euro area economy has to be assessed continuously.

The Euro-indicators/PEEIs special topic is exclusively dedicated to infra-annual economic statistics such as consumer prices, national accounts, balance of payments, external trade, industry, energy, trade and services, and the labour market, as well as a selection of monetary and financial indicators of the European Central Bank and business and consumer survey results from the European Commission's Economic and Financial Affairs DG.

The pages are updated daily and offer free of charge statistics for the EU and the euro area.

The database contains key indicators and an unrivalled volume of mostly harmonised and, above all, uniformly structured and documented national and European series. Data can be extracted online with the help of a new, user-friendly browser and customised extractions can be obtained on request. The alert function helps everybody to keep track of what is going on statistically.

Metadata in ESMS format are available for the following collections:

  • Balance of payments
  • Business and Consumers Surveys
  • Consumer prices
  • International Trade
  • Industry, Trade and Services
  • Labour Market
  • Monetary and Financial Indicators
  • National Accounts (plus separate metadata for Government Accounts)
  • House price statistics

The objective of the building permit index is to show the future development of construction activity in terms of per square meter of useful floor. The current base year is 2010 (Index 2010 = 100). The index is presented in seasonally adjusted form. Growth rates with respect to the previous month (M/M-1) are calculated from seasonally adjusted figures while growth rates with respect to the same month of the previous year (M/M-12) are calculated from raw data.
