Changes in the CSV time-series files

This section shows the changes introduced or about to be introduced in time-series files in CSV format. Regardless of the above, the manual provided in the right-hand side panel will always be up-to-date with the current structure of the CSV files available on the Banco de España's Statistics webpage.

  • 07/10/2020: Daily date format has been corrected and the order of the first three header lines has been changed. Please, see change on 01/10/2020 for more information.
  • 01/10/2020: On Wednesday 7 October, the daily date format will be corrected from DD MMMAAAA to DD MMM AAAA, that is, a space will be inserted between the month and the year.

Additionally, the order of the first three header lines will be changed to:

    • Name of the series
    • Sequential number
    • Series alias (when available)

This change is due to fact that the series alias is a topological identifier. It shows the position of the series in the table and can change at any time. Consequently, it is not a valid permanent series ID.

  • 20/08/2020The headers of all static CSVs in the Statistics section have been standardised so that they all contain the same information. These headers are: series alias, sequential number, series name, series description, unit description and frequency.
