Macroeconomic database

The macroeconomic database contains data on basic macroeconomic indicators divided into eight areas: GDP, labor market, prices, public sector, balance of payments, external environment, monthly indicators and financial market. In the database, it is possible to work with time series of your choice, including grafical output.

Frequency and transformations
The database contains annual data (A), quarterly data (Q) and monthly data (M). It also contains various data transformations conditional on data frequency. E.g. for data of quarterly frequency, following transformations can be selected: quarterly change (QoQ – comparison with the previous quarter, seasonally adjusted data) and annual change (YoY – comparison with the same quarter of the previous year).

Description of the time series
The name of given indicator is followed by more detailed description of the time series in brackets. Abbreviations in alphabetical order are listed below (see list).

Data sources
Source data published by different domestic and foreign institutions (see list) are processed by the NBS in order to obtain dynamics, real variables etc. For the data that are published in the database without the NBS computational input, the institution that published the original time series is stated as a source. For the time series that are transformed from the original source (level) data by the NBS into various transformations (e.g. mothly dynamics), the NBS is stated as a source. Rounding effects may arise in the computation of the transformations and may be a source of discrepancy between the data published by the source institutions and the NBS.

The database is usually updated on the day following the publication of given indicator in line with the release calendars, and therefore, the macroeconomic database may not always correspond with the database of the source institution, especially when interim reviews of the data are conducted in terms not specified in the release calendars.

In case that the selected time series will not appear in the chart, the data of selected frequency is unavailable or the time series are currently processe
