Our statistics: New visualisation tool – Financing and investment dynamics

04. 05. 2017 | Statistics

The tool aims to make easier the analysing and increase the understanding of "who finances whom" among non-experts.

In order to maximise its outreach, the new visualisation tool will include not only euro area but also national statistics and is available in all twenty-three EU languages as of 28 April 2017. The visualisation can be embedded easily in external websites, such as online newspapers.

The new visualisation tool presents the statistics in the form of network graphs and explanatory text. The visualisation presents the financial interconnectedness within and between institutional euro area/national sectors and between them and the rest of the world. Users can select individual financial instruments, sectors, country, language and time dimensions to better understand who is financing whom and who is investing where within the economy.
