CEVES report published in 2007 consists of a deep and comprehensive analysis of macroeconomic figures, including key price, exchange rate, production and output data, publicly available fiscal, monetary and external sector data. The main focus of the report was on the national accounts data and on providing a new framework for the analysis of Serbian economy. The study uncovered substantial mistakes and problems, especially related to the GDP level and the expenditure structure. The final conclusions of the study called for a prompt revision by the Republic Bureau of Statistics (SBS) of the official methodology and figures for GDP and investment.
