Economics Statistics

Sample surveys

The Bank collects information from other national sources by conducting periodical sample surveys on households and firms. Most of these surveys are conducted in close collaboration with other researchers and statisticians from the European System of Central Banks (ESCB) to ensure cross-country comparability of the results. The collection of data from these surveys provide valuable evidence, directly from households and firms, with a detailed breakdown that is typically not available from existing official statistics.
