To facilitate the building of economic/econometric models for Ireland, two databases are currently being constructed for the Macro Modelling Project.

The Irish database consists of the latest available data for a number of key economic indicators.

The real-time database is a collection of vintages for a wide variety of variables that may be of interest to model builders. The purpose of the real-time database is to allow studies to be undertaken that involve data that has undergone revision.  In other words, the real-time database allows researchers to look back at snapshots of the economy at different times in history and use the data that was available at that particular time.

All the data are in the public domain and periodically refreshed. We encourage its use for any academic and research purpose, but we cannot provide direct support. We highly appreciate comments pointing out at improvements and signalling mistakes.
