Data Collection and Production
The compilation of quarterly European sector accounts is the outcome of a close collaboration by Eurostat, the European Central Bank (ECB), the national statistical institutes and the national central banks in the European Union.
They produce quarterly figures for the euro area (18 countries) or whole EU (28 countries), released four months afterwards.
The euro area accounts are available at the Eurostat website, Eurostat data and at the European Central Bank (ECB). Detailed figures for non-financial accounts of the European Union are only available on the Eurostat website.
In this section, non-financial and financial sector accounts data and related comments are provided under 'News' (news releases), 'Data' and 'Detailed charts'.
