This release covers issue yields of government bonds, specifically the issue yield and years to maturity.
According to the OeNB,
The issue yields published are volume-weighted averages of the return on investment on all new issues and increases of Austrian government bonds for the respective periods (excluding regular issues, convertible bonds, warrant bonds, index-linked bonds and private placements). Until July 2005, yields were calculated also for the unit "domestic issuers, total" (bonds issued by the central government and all other domestic issuers, including credit institutions; see “Archive”). The data on issue yields for government bonds are complemented with data on the respective maturities, calculated from the value date, based on volume-weighted averages.
The issue yields do not constitute official interest rates and therefore do not qualify as reference interest rates or benchmarks. For details on the individual government bond issuances, see information provided by OeKB and OeBFA.
Data are not revised.
