For the use of the EU KLEMS dataseries in statistical programs we have constructed txt files (comma separated) of the Excel files displayed above. These files contain the data of all countries and variables. We have made a distinction between all countries and EU aggregates and between the basic files and additional files. Please note that these text files are not updated on a regular basis and might contain older vintages of the dataset. If you want to be sure of having the most recent data, we would suggest to look at the Excel files.
