The monetary, financial and external statistics, as well as the comprehensive sets of indicators and seasonally adjusted economic data compiled by the Bundesbank under its legal mandate cover a broad spectrum of user-oriented, prepared economic data. This multi-layered information system forms the central empirical basis, in particular, for the monetary policy decision-making process, as well as macroeconomic and macroprudential analyses.

The Bundesbank cooperates with the Federal Statistical Office (Statistisches Bundesamt) at national level to perform its statistical tasks. Both parties recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding which places this longstanding and successful cooperation on a firm foundation.

Enhanced information for financial stability analysis and crisis prevention

Henceforth, Germany will provide enhanced information for financial stability analysis and crisis prevention in line with the new and most comprehensive IMF data standard, Special Data Dissemination Standard Plus. Nine countries across the world will introduce this new IMF statistical standard. Besides Germany, these are France, Italy, the Netherlands, the Philippines, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and the United States. The implementation of SDDS Plus will make an important contribution to closing the data gaps that have come to light in the wake of the global financial crisis. Based on cooperation between the Deutsche Bundesbank, the Federal Ministry of Finance and the Federal Statistical Office, in an initial step, additional information on sectoral balance sheets, general government operations and holdings of debt securities – broken down by depositor and issuer sectors (debtor/creditor relationships) – will be published. Furthermore, data will be provided for the IMF surveys "Coordinated Portfolio Investment Survey", "Coordinated Direct Investment Survey" and "Currency Composition of Official Foreign Exchange Reserves". At a later stage, further data will be published on general government gross debt and the claims and liabilities of other financial corporations as well as selected financial soundness indicators on a quarterly basis.
