The monetary, financial and foreign trade statistics compiled within the framework of the Bundesbank's statutory mandate as well as the comprehensive indicator sets and seasonally adjusted economic data comprise a broad range of economic data prepared in a user-oriented manner. This multi-layered information system forms the central empirical basis, in particular for the monetary policy decision-making process and macroeconomic and macroprudential analyses.

The Bundesbank cooperates with the Federal Statistical Office at national level to fulfil its statistical tasks. The long-standing cooperation was put on a firm footing in 2014 with a Memorandum of Understanding.
