Wolf Müller / Marc Rothemund


The 2007 ECRI Statistical Package is available in three different forms: in PDF, as an Excel file or a combination of PDF and Excel files.

Orders for the Excel file (either individually or in combination with the PDF) will be dispatched by email as soon as payment is received. Orders for the PDF will be immediately downloadable and accompanied by a print-out dispatched by post.

The ECRI Statistical Package is a collection of data on consumer credit and lending to households, covering 32 countries: the 27 EU member states, one EU candidate country (Turkey), the United States, Australia, Canada and Japan. The purpose of the ECRI Statistical Package is to provide reliable statistical information allowing users to make meaningful comparisons between countries. Accordingly, definitions of concepts and aggregates from national authorities are provided. The package contains nominal data on major time series such as outstanding consumer credit, annual final consumption of households and annual disposable income. Data are presented in euro and in national currency. In addition, ratios of household indebtedness are calculated and illustrated by graphs. For some countries, tables presenting the composition of consumer credit stocks by lender and by instrument are also available.
