Search engine

Do you want to search for information on our website? Our search engine allows you to search in our press releases, articles, publications and even our staff. Several filters can be applied.


Site map

The site map lists all the website’s categories and subcategories. It helps users navigate through the website and easily find a specific page or section.


JEL classification

The JEL classification is the standard classification in economic science and was developed by the American Economic Association (AEA). It is used in numerous professional magazines and publica-tions, including those of the Federal Planning Bureau, and allows a standardized classification of sci-entific literature on economics.



Each publication includes a number of key words, all of which are listed in alphabetical order in this section. Naturally, more than one publication can be linked to the same key word.


Use of cookies

Like most websites, the FPB’s site uses cookies to give its users a better service. The FPB has an estab-lished policy on this topic.


User Charter

The Federal Planning Bureau’s user charter was approved and signed by the Executive Council in June 2010. It covers a number of commitments concerning the term of treatment, office opening hours, publication distribution and the evaluation of services offered.



The Federal Planning Bureau (FPB) places a great deal of importance on the quality of the services it offers. Therefore, in the unfortunate event that you have a comment or complaint, we kindly invite you to communicate them to the FPB complaint manager. The complaint manager will in his turn pass on your complaint or comment to the relevant person or service. A complaint by no means replaces a legal appeal procedure.
