Data presentation - Summary description

The AMECO database is compiled by the DG-ECFIN in the European Commission. It contains annual macro-economic time series submitted by the Member States and “filtered” by the Commission. These data are used in the forecast exercises done two times per year (Spring and Autumn).  It is the official source for some variables, especially those related to public finances.

Since 2018 there is only a limited interim forecast concerning GDP growth and inflation and as coincidence the Winter forecast data will not be introduced in AMECO anymore.

Current vintage: Spring 2022;  more information can be found on DG-ECFIN website:
