Eurostat offers information on a number of key indicators to monitor the impact of the financial crisis on the economy.
In particular, the Principal European Economic Indicators (PEEIs) collection provides an overview of key short-term macroeconomic indicators for the euro area, European Union, Member States and main economic partners, including data on output, demand, income, prices, labour market, external transactions, monetary and financial markets.
Moreover, national accounts data provide a rich source of information for macro-prudential analysis. The Eurostat database has, for instance, dedicated sections for annual and quarterly national accounts, annual and quarterly sector accounts, supply, use and input-output tables as well as financial accounts, which include balance sheet data, and government accounts.
The monitoring of achievements towards the objectives of the Europe 2020 strategy and the implementation of the enhanced surveillance will rely on the availability of timely, reliable and comparable statistics that are already produced within the ESS, with probable requests to improve specific areas.
