High Frequency Business Cycle Monitoring - January - July 2021

The purpose of this project is to extend the Weekly WIFO Economic Index (WWWI) to provide weekly indicators for five GDP sub-aggregates on the expenditure side (private consumption and goods exports) and the production side (value added in manufacturing, trade and restaurants and hotels). In addition, based of the WWWI for GDP and its sub-aggregates, the Federal Ministry of Finance is provided with a weekly assessment of the economic situation in Austria as well as a monthly international comparison and an assessment of economic sentiment indicators for businesses and private households. This collection contains all economic briefings prepared for the Federal Ministry of Finance during the period 21 January 2021 to 6 August 2021.
