time series
Period of latest dataLatest dataData for previous period

1a Data for previous period seasonally and working day adjusted (Census-X12-ARIMA).

1b Working day adjusted data (Census-X12-ARIMA).

2 Persons with place of work in Germany.

3a ILO labour force statistics, Federal Statistical Office, Germany. Seasonally adjusted data (Census-X12-ARIMA). The ILO unemployment data were based on a telephone survey that was carried out up to the reference month of April 2007. The labour force survey was planned as subsitute of the telephone survey starting with the reference month May 2007. But because of quality reasons conercerning the labour force survey the unemployment data will estimated on the basis of the telephone survey for a short tranisition period.

4 Monthly indices of agreed hourly and weekly wages of wage earners and quarterly indices of agreed hourly and weekly wages and agreed monthly salaries by main groups of branches.

5 From 2005 including cumulative assumption of FDE/LAG debt (German Unity Fund/Equalisation of Burdens Fund)

6 There is no statutory provision for the individual credits taken on to be allocated on the one hand to follow-up financing and on the other hand to net borrowing during the course of the year, nor would it be feasible to do so.

7 Data are not seasonally adjusted. Whilst latest data are deemed provisional, data for previous periods are final (if no substantial revisions were to occur).

8 Incl. credit to non-financial public enterprises.

9 Refers to assets vis-à-vis non-euro-area residents.

10 Refers to liabilities to non-euro-area residents.

11 Refers to banknotes in circulation and the following deposits of euro-area MFIs held with the Deutsche Bundesbank, denominated in euro: "current accounts (covering the minimum reserve system)", "deposit facility", "fixed-term deposits", "fine-tuning reverse operations" and "deposits related to margin calls".

12 The Bundesbank is not allowed to grant credit to the public sector; the amounts shown in this category refer to "grandfathered"equalisation claims originating from the German currency reform in 1948.

13 Credit to the private sector is restricted to financial sector counterparties; there is no credit to non-financial (public) enterprises.

14 Refers to claims on non-euro area residents.

15 The data can be accessed by clicking on 'Auction result - Treasury discount paper (Unverzinsliche Schatzanweisungen "Bubills") of the Federal Republic of Germany' provided under 'Current press releases on Federal securities'.

17 The Deutsche Bundesbank publishes the DAX index on a monthly basis only. More frequently updated data can be obtained from other sources. Furthermore, Deutsche Bundesbank does not publish percentage changes in the DAX index.

18 Whilst the latest data are deemed provisional, data for previous periods are final unless substantial revisions occur. Furthermore, the data referring to the latest four years are revised every year in March.

19 Quoting percentage changes in net flows is not meaningful.

20 Portfolio investment (assets) includes derivatives.

21 Reserves are defined as foreign currency denominated claims on non-euro area residents plus gold, holdings of SDRs and the reserve position in the Fund.

22 Quoting percentage changes in (net) balances is not meaningful.

23 A quarterly IIP is being published from September 2005 onwards.

24 Every year in September, based on more detailed data sources, an IIP for the preceding year-end is published as a press release on the Bundesbank homepage.

25 External Debt presents only a fraction of the overall financial relationships of Germany with other countries and is more than offset by Germany's external assets.
