Data
  Description The ECB Survey of Professional Forecasters (SPF) is a quarterly survey of expectations for the rates of inflation, real GDP growth and unemployment in the euro area for several horizons, together with a quantitative assessment of the uncertainty surrounding them. The survey is called the ECB Survey of Professional Forecasters to reflect the fact that all of the participants are experts affiliated with financial or non-financial institutions based within the European Union. Additional information can be found in Occasional Paper No. 8 "An introduction to the ECB Survey of Professional Forecasters". Results are reported in the ECB’s Monthly Bulletin on a quarterly basis (i.e. in the February, May, August and November issues).
