Preliminary gross domestic product (GDP) flash estimate for Europe

On 29 April 2016, Eurostat published a preliminary GDP flash estimate around 30 days after the end of the reference quarter, starting with the first quarter of 2016. The accompanying press release shows first results of the seasonally and calendar-adjusted quarterly GDP volume change rates for the European Union and the euro area.

The Federal Statistical Office transmits confidential estimates of the German GDP to enable Eurostat to calculate the European aggregates. For the time being, the German GDP flash estimates will not be published.

Further information, e. g. on the methodology of the new preliminary GDP flash estimate for Europe, is available on the Eurostat website.
