Central and Eastern European Data (WIIW)



WIIWThe WIIW portal provides economic data on central, eastern and 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.
