Economic expectations for Central and Eastern Europe including Turkey (CEE region) have slightly improved again in August 2016. In the current survey, the ZEW-Erste Group Bank Economic Sentiment Indicator for the CEE region has increased by 3.5 points to a level of 15.4 points, after a decrease of similar magnitude in July 2016.

The ZEW-Erste Group Bank Economic Sentiment Indicator for Central and Eastern Europe reflects financial market experts’ expectations for the CEE region on a six-month time horizon. The indicator has been compiled on a monthly basis together with further financial market data by ZEW, Mannheim, in collaboration with Erste Group Bank, Vienna, since 2007.

Information concerning further indicators for the CEE region, the Eurozone, the individual CEE countries covered by the analysis, and Austria can be found in the table at the bottom of the press release. The answers of all survey participants are taken into account for the calculation of the indicators for the CEE region, the Eurozone and Turkey. The answers of the Turkish survey participants are not incorporated into the calculation of the indicators for individual CEE countries and Austria, because their high participation share in the survey could cause significant biases in the survey results.

You can find a data sheet with the complete results of the survey in the attached PDF-file.
