Estonia’s euro entry raised prices by 0.2-0.3

According to Statistics Estonia, today, on 18 May, Eurostat released a report which assesses the impact of euro changeover on the Estonian Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices.

This is a report which Eurostat compiles on all countries that have joined the Euro Area right after their accession. Estonia joined the Euro Area on 1 January 2011.

According to Eurostat’s provisional assessment, the impact of euro changeover on the Estonian Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices remained between 0.2 and 0.3 percentage points in the period from December 2010 to March 2011. The estimate is in line with the experience of the first-wave changeover in 2002 as well as with the experience of Slovenia, Cyprus, Malta and Slovakia.

Eurostat considers that the methodology used by Statistics Estonia for producing the index conforms to the requirements set for the Harmonised Indices of Consumer Prices and, that the reliability of the index is adequate.

At the end of the report, Eurostat states that in practice it is not possible to estimate precisely what the change of the Estonian Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices would have been if the euro changeover had not taken place. The Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices is influenced by a lot of factors which may amplify or cancel each other out or ovelap with potential changeover effects.

The report is available on the website of Eurostat at http://epp.eurostat.ec.europa.eu/portal/page/portal/hicp/publications/technical_and_thematic_news_releases.

Over 72 000 people participated at the Museum Night

The Museum Night held last Saturday drew 72 012 visitors to the 139 museums and monuments in Estonia. “Museums were open in all the counties and there were visitors in all the museums,” one of the co-ordinators of the Museum Night, Epp Alatalu, told BNS.

“In small museums, such as the Jüri-Mardi Farm Museum in Järva County, visitors from farther away arrived before the museum night even started in order to be able to visit more museums,” Alatalu said.
The highest visitor numbers were in big museums such as KUMU(art), Maarjamäe Hall (history), and Fat Margaret (maritime).

This year the museums were open one hour later, until 11 p.m. Despite rain and the Eurovision song contest taking place on the same evening, the number of museum visitors was higher than expected.
