The Area Wide Model

Members of the EABCN can download an up-to-date Euro Area macroeconomic time series from the Area Wide Model (AWM) dataset by Gabriel Fagan, Jérôme Henry and Ricardo Mestre. The dataset covers a wide range of quarterly Euro Area macroeconomic time series and has become a standard reference for empirical studies on the Euro Area economy. The updated AWM database starts in 1970q1 (for most variables) and is now available until 2015q4.

For a description of this database, see the ECB working paper No. 42: ‘An Area-wide Model (AWM) for the euro area’ by Gabriel Fagan, Jérôme Henry, and Ricardo Mestre (January 2001).
