We review the literature on business-cycle correlation between the euro area and Central and Eastern European countries (CEECs), a topic that has gained attention in recent years as new EU entrants prepare for participation in the monetary union. Our meta-analysis suggests several CEECs already have comparably high correlation with the euro area business cycle. We also find that estimation methodologies can have a significant effect on correlation coefficients. While central bankers are more conservative in their estimates, we find no evidence of a geographical bias in the studies.
