The version 2005 of the Romanian macromodel (Dobrescu 2005, 2006) was builtusing data for the period 1990 (sometimes 1989) - 2004. This paper insists on three (probably the most complicated) problems: the evaluation of export, import, foreign capital inflows and exchange rate in euros, since the available information was expressed mainly in USD; the computation of more or less credible series regarding the tangible fixed assets, without which any attempt to elaborate an acceptable production function would inherently fail; the estimation of the alpha coefficient, taking into consideration different sources of labour income of households.
