Central and Eastern European Data (WIIW)



WIIWThe WIIW portal provides economic data on central, eastern/southeastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) from 1990 to present. Data is collected and collated by the Vienna Institute for International Economic Studies - Wiener Institut für Internationale Wirtschaftsvergleiche.

WIIW also provides access to full-text publications (top menu of the homepage), country profiles, monthly reports, research reports, handbooks of statistics and country forecasts (also in Excel format).

Cross-country comparisons for 1990-2023 are available via the WIIW visual analytics tool called the CESEE Visual Data Explorer (CESEE VDE) accessible via the upper right icon in the top menu. The data explorer facilitates data selection by filters such as period; topic (eg. foreign trade); indicator (eg. GDP total/real growth rate %); and country/region. Data can be visualised on the platform and exported to .csv, .xlsx, Stata and R.

EUI members have access to all content via the EUI's premium WIIW subscription. Please ignore pricing information on the platform.  For assistance, write to [email protected]
