Indicators 8.3 to 8.7

The former indicator 8.6 has been split into the current indicator 8.6 (relating to the financing of non-financial corporations) and the new indicator 8.7 (relating to the financing of households and NPISHs). Both these indicators, as well as indicators 8.3 and 8.4, include monthly data for credit institutions´ loans and deposits vis-à-vis both sectors. These monthly data have been obtained following the entry into force of Regulation ECB/2001/13, and are available from January 2003. Indicators 8.6 and 8.7 aggregate the information on loans from resident credit institutions with that on loans from securitisation SPVs, although the latter are also shown as a memorandum item. In addition, the new indicator 8.7 breaks down loans to households and NPISHs into those used to finance the acquisition of housing and those used for other purposes.
