Long-term interest rates statistics

One of the convergence criteria, stated in Maastricht Treaty, which examine the achievement of the degree of sustainable convergence of four main criteria, is reflected in the long-term interest rate levels. This criterion states in relation to the long-term interest rate levels, that a Member State – observed over a period of one year before the examination – must have an average nominal long-term interest rate that does not exceed by more than two percentage points of that, at most, the three best performing Member States in terms of price stability. The interest rate levels shall be measured on the basis of long-term government bonds or comparable securities, taking into account differences in national definitions. The residual maturity of government bonds should be as close as possible to ten years. Selected government bond should be sufficiently liquid. The statistical framework for the definition of the long-term interest rates of the pre-ins/accession countries follows closely the principles, which were specified and implemented in close liaison with the European Commission, as part of the preparation of Stage Three of the Economic and Monetary Union for the current EU Member States.
