Tasks of the Bundesbank in the field of statistics

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.
