Retail Interest Rate Statistics

Business Business


Interest rates and new business volumes are collected from credit institutions with significant levels of lending or deposit business with households or non-financial corporations. These harmonised statistics are used for the analysis of monetary developments, and the monetary transmission mechanism as well as for the monitoring of financial stability. Monthly interest rate statistics cover all euro-denominated agreements with euro-area households and NFCs, while quarterly interest rate statistics cover mortgage drawdowns in the Republic of Ireland, broken down by interest rate type.


The MR1 return is to be completed on a monthly basis by a sample of Irish resident credit institutions specified by the Central Bank of Ireland. The primary aim of MR1 is to collect data to inform national and euro-area policy making. The MR1 return satisfies reporting requirements as laid down by the ECB, concerning statistics on interest rates applied by monetary financial institutions (MFIs) to deposits and loans vis-à-vis households and non-financial corporations.
