South-East European Monetary History Database

The South-East European Monetary History Network (SEEMHN) was established in 2006 and brings together financial and monetary historians, economists and statisticians. Its main objective is to promote knowledge of South-Eastern European monetary history and policy as an integral part of the European and global monetary history.

Recognizing the need for reliable data as a basis for empirical studies, the Bank of Albania, the Bank of Greece, the Bulgarian National Bank, the Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey, the National Bank of Romania, the National Bank of Serbia and the Oesterreichische Nationalbank have cooperated to establish a database of 19th and 20th century monetary and financial data for South-Eastern Europe. The recently published data volume entitled “South-Eastern European Monetary and Economic Statistics from the Nineteenth Century to World War II” represents a milestone in the joint endeavor to publish harmonized long-run time series on monetary, financial and other macroeconomic variables.

The publication includes eight similarly structured country chapters. A complete dataset is presented for each country, covering six broad groups of indicators: (1) monetary variables, (2) interest rates, (3) exchange rates, (4) government finances, (5) prices, production and labour, and (6) national accounts and population.

At the beginning of each country chapter, an index table provides information on the list of variables presented, the time span covered, the reporting frequency, the applicable unit of account and the codes assigned to the variables. The reader can use the index table as a roadmap for safe data search!
