A Data Science Central Community
by Domenico Giannone, Jérôme Henry,
Magdalena Lalik and Michele Modugno.
This paper describes how we constructed a real-time database covering more than 200 series regularly published in the European Central Bank Monthly Bulletin, as made available ahead of publication to the Governing Council members before their first meeting of the month. We describe the database in details and study the properties of the euro area real-time data flow and data revisions, also providing comparisons with the United States and Japan.
