This dashboard contains a set of key economic indicators, including projections from different points in time as recorded in review reports. Users may select, for each programme country, indicators grouped by sector and sub-sector. For example, real gross domestic product (real GDP) can be found by clicking on ’National accounts’, then ‘GDP, real’, and finally ‘Gross domestic product’. The bottom panel displays the values of the indicator (for a selected time frequency) for the available time frame.
When an indicator is selected, the user should select a source date from the left-hand menu. The chart displays actual and projected figures published at the chosen date. Thus, ‘actual’ and ‘projected’ refer to the data the European Commission published in its review report from that date.
In the left-hand menu, under ‘Visualisation’, the basic view is ‘Indicator’. For some indicators it is possible to display their detailed components. For certain indicators, different display options are available, such as values in euros or growth rates. Below the ‘Country’ selection, the user can choose the ‘Source date’. The source listed below the chart links to the source document, where one can find the historical context of the indicator and learn about changes in outlook across review reports.
The filters on the left-hand side include a ‘Methodology/assumption’ dropdown menu. The most common assumption is ‘Standard or baseline
’; however for some indicators, the database may include other variations, such as different scenarios, or alternative methodologies.
