This page collects answers to the most frequent questions about the use of the Dashboard


Some functionality is missing on my tablet/mobile...
The Dashboard requires significant screen real-estate and is best used with a desktop computer.

Some graphics don't display properly
The Dashboard is best experienced with the latest versions of Firefox of Chrome browsers. Microsoft browsers, especially older versions don't fully conform to graphics standards.

What is the difference between Target, Tracked and Live data sets?
Target data sets are the in-principle available Open Data datasets available from the integrated repositories (currently the ECB SDW - we are expanding to further depositories in the future). Tracked datasets is the subset of the target datasets that are currently processed by the Dashboard. We aim to eventually incorporate all datasets that are relevant for economic and risk analysis. Live datasets is the subset of the tracked datasets that meet the criteria for analytic processing (excludes discontinued series, short time series, unchanging data and other data quality criteria).
