wiiw Annual Database

A broad range of key macroeconomic and structural indicators for 23 CESEE countries are compiled on an annual basis. There are regular updates in the course of the year as soon as the original statistical sources become available. The database provides a comprehensive and comparable overview on structural indicators in both cross-country and thematic perspective. Most of the time series start in 1989, for some countries even back in the 1960s.


wiiw Monthly Database

The monthly data on important leading economic indicators for 23 CESEE countries are more timely and allow an analysis over different time ranges. They facilitate the discovery of recent trends and business cycles. Time series usually start in 1990/91 and are continuously revised and updated in the course of the year.


wiiw FDI Database

Contains time series on FDI inflows and outflows, inward and outward stocks by component, by partner country and by activity for 23 CESEE countries. This data allows to generate country- and industry-specific FDI profiles. The time series are updated twice a year and start from 1990 onwards as far as the data are available.

The database allows for historical analysis of specialisation patterns and for a comparison of detailed industry indicators across countries and individual industrial sectors over time.
