Reference area coverage

Euro area

Sector coverage

The data refer to or are derived from the consolidated financial statement of the Eurosystem.

Methodological information
Time period

Banking system’s liquidity position: monthly euro area aggregates.

Consolidated financial statement of the Eurosystem: weekly and monthly. Weekly data refer to end-of-week positions of the Eurosystem as a whole; monthly ECB and NCB contributions to the Eurosystem consolidated financial statement refer to end-of-period outstanding amount (calendar for reference day available here ); monthly Eurosystem data refer to the averages of daily positions over the corresponding maintenance periods. Hence when no maintenance period is ending at a given month, data cannot be compiled by definition and the corresponding data point shows a missing value.

Frequency of data collection

1) Monthly euro area aggregates are updated at the end of each maintenance period.

2) Monthly ECB and NCB contributions to the Eurosystem consolidated financial statement are updated every month on the publication date specified here .
