The Monthly Bulletin provides a detailed overview of recent economic and monetary developments in the euro area in the form of text and statistics.

Its editorial - the key statement - reflects the  Governing Council’s monthly assessment of the economy and inflationary threats.

The Bulletin is published one week after the Council’s  monetary policy decision.

The December 2014 issue of the ECB’s Monthly Bulletin is the last. It has been replaced by a new Economic Bulletin, which will be published, in view of the announced shift in January 2015 to a six-weekly interval between Governing Council monetary policy meetings, two weeks after each meeting.
