Macroeconomic projections

Published: 17/3/2023 Modified: 15/9/2023

Macroeconomic projections aim to predict and understand the future state of the economy on a broad scale. They include projections of economic growth, inflation, wages, unemployment and trade. Eurosystem and ECB staff produce macroeconomic projections for the euro area and the wider global economy. Macroeconomic projections contribute to the ECB Governing Council’s assessment of economic developments and risks to price stability (ECB). Since joining the euro area, the Croatian National Bank (CNB) produces two basic Eurosystem macroeconomic projections, along with the ECB and other national central banks. These projections are published in June and December. In addition, twice a year, in March and September, the ECB independently updates these projections for the euro area, while the CNB independently updates the projections for Croatia.
