In Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe (CESEE), the use of foreign currencies in general and of the euro in particular is widespread. Whereas foreign currencies play an important role in CESEE, which has implications for the conduct of monetary and fiscal policy, knowledge about the various dimensions of euro use in the region is limited.

The OeNB Euro Survey provides a unique and comprehensive source of information about individuals’ foreign currency assets and liabilities in CESEE. The harmonized design of the survey allows comparisons not only across countries, but also across sociodemographic groups. The micro data supplied by the OeNB Euro Survey afford useful insights into the determinants of euroization, thus providing important input for the academic discussion on this topic.
