The Area Wide Model

Dear EABCN colleagues,

We would like to inform you that the database associated with the Area-Wide Model (AWM) and distributed on the EABCN website has stopped being updated since 2019. Notice that the AWM model was already decommissioned in 2010. Moreover, Eurostat and the ECB regularly provide tools to access official euro area data via their websites. Therefore, researchers who are interested in using these data can still refer to the historical databases available below and update them using the official ECB sources at here.

Thank you for your understanding.

The historical database with data available until 2017q4 can be downloaded using the data link provided below.

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).
