Financial Literacy – Dashboard

This new interactive dashboard provided by the Oesterreichische Nationalbank (OeNB) is the first to present comprehensive data on financial education in Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe (CESEE). While international institutions such as the World Bank and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) have collected and made available data for a wide range of countries, the topic of financial knowledge has so far been given little attention in most CESEE countries. Publishing these data constitutes an important step toward closing this gap and providing a first glimpse on the state of financial literacy in CESEE. The data presented here are collected in the course of the OeNB Euro Survey and analyzed in cooperation with a researcher from the ifo Institute in Munich. Users of the new interactive OeNB dashboard may compare CESEE data with those for Austria and other OECD countries, create customized charts and download both the charts and the underlying data.
