New European Commission / Eurostat guide to Eurozone fiscal data calculations

On 23 April the European Commission issued an online guide explaining the procedure for assessing whether Eurozone member states’ deficits comply with European Union legislation. The guide, available on the Eurozone Portal, explains the excessive deficit procedure, the calendar for publication of data and the validation of data from the member states. Related resources are accessible via the Library’s Eurozone Data Directory and the Euro information page.
