The paper examines the out-of-sample forecasting performance of mixed-frequency pVAR models for four key macroeconomic variables using data from four European economies, with the goal of providing evidence on the usefulness and reliability of these models for use by official statistical agencies.

Nuevos métodos para estimaciones oportunas: predicción del crecimiento del PIB de la zona del euro mediante regresión cuantil. Edición 2020en Estadisticas
In this paper we are discussing the possibility of using quantile regression models to provide nowcasting and short-term forecasts for macroeconomic variables. The method is then applied to produce density nowcasting of euro area and GDP comparing them with the results obtained by using a combination density approach. [+]

The EHIS wave 3 manual was published firstly on the Eurostat website in March 2018. All errors and possible improvements detected in the text since then were either removed from or added to this re-edition 2020.
Public health policies need reliable data on health status, health care use and health determinants from population surveys for all EU and EEA member states. The European Health Interview Survey (EHIS) is the instrument to collect such information. The corresponding methodological manual aims ensuring a high level of comparability of the survey results across countries.
The first wave of EHIS was conducted under a gentlemen’s agreement in 17 EU Member States between 2006 and 2009. The second wave of EHIS was conducted as a mandatory survey in all 28 EU Member States, Iceland and Norway between 2013 and 2015. The third wave of EHIS is planned for 2019, based on the Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No. 2018/255 of 19 February 2018. This manual should serve as the handbook for more detailed planning and implementing EHIS wave 3 in EU and EEA member states. Conducting the survey according to the rules and recommendations described in these guidelines is crucial for ensuring harmonized and high quality data on health across Europe.
The Methodological manual for EHIS wave 3 is split into two main parts. The first part includes conceptual guidelines and translation and interview instructions for all modules, sub-modules and variables (including model questions); an overview of core social variables is provided as well. The second part of the manual deals with statistical survey guidelines and contains also a description of the technical survey variables. Instructions on data processing (including a codebook and validation rules) and transmission to Eurostat as well as the format for quality reporting (a quality report template) are provided in separate documents.

Where does our energy come from? How dependent are we on energy imports? Which kind of energy do we consume in the EU and how much does it cost? Are we efficient in the consumption of energy? How much greenhouse gas do we emit in the EU?
Answers to these questions and to many more can be found in the updated 2020 edition of Eurostat's digital publication Shedding light on energy in the EU – A guided tour of energy statistics.
This digital publication presents information about the energy sector in a user-friendly way and features short texts, dynamic infographics, animations, graphs and photos. More experienced users can use the Sankey diagrams or the visualisation tool on energy prices for additional information. [+]
The tables in this publication present government finance statistics (GFS) data by Member State, for the European Union, for the euro area as well as for the United Kingdom, Iceland, Norway and Switzerland. The GFS presentation shows, in an integrated way: government revenue, government expenditure, government deficit, transactions in assets and in liabilities, other economic flows, and balance sheets. It gives a clear picture of the links between these data. The publication is intended primarily for national governments, Central Banks, economic analysts and academics with an interest in government finance, although it could also be of interest to the wider public. The value-added in comparison with other publications is to give an overview of government finances from several angles with consistent information. The publication covers data since 1995. [+]
These guidelines have been prepared to help national accounts compilers implement measures to improve the numerical consistency of the accounts. This handbook contains definitions, explanations, recommendations and examples of good practice under the current 2010 European system of national and regional accounts (ESA 2010). All recommendations aim to ensure that the output of national accounts compilation is numerically consistent across the related accounts and their datasets. [+]
