The SEEMHN data volume

South-Eastern European Monetary and Economics Statistics from the 19th century to World War II. The SEEMHN data volume has been compiled by the central banks of Albania, Bulgaria, Greece, Romania, Serbia, Turkey and Austria.


Overview of Available Time Series

A complete dataset is presented for each country, covering six broad groups of indicators: (1) monetary variables, (2) interest rates, (3) exchange rates, (4) government finances, (5) prices, production and labor, and (6) national accounts and population.

Eight Similarly Structured Country Chapters

Each chapter consists of four parts: (1) major monetary events, including a short account of the respective country’s institutional framework for monetary policy implementation; (2) a detailed description and definition of the published variables; (3) a detailed discussion of the primary and secondary data sources used in the data collection process; and (4) the historical data series per country.

Index Table

At the beginning of each country chapter, an index table provides information on the list of variables presented, the time span covered, the reporting frequency, the applicable unit of account and the codes assigned to the variables. The reader can use the index table as a roadmap for safe data search. Moreover, the index table is replicated in each country data file and makes it easy to quickly navigate to the annual and monthly time series.
