International Financial Statistics (IMF IFS)
The IMF IFS is a standard source of international statistics on all aspects of international and domestic finance. It reports current data needed in the analysis of problems of international payments and of inflation and deflation, i.e., data on exchange rates, international liquidity, international banking, money and banking, interest rates, prices, production, international transactions, government accounts and national accounts. The database provides data for more than 200 countries and regions. The data is available on a monthly, quarterly and annual frequency and goes back as far as 1948.
Direction of Trade Statistics (IMF DOTS)
The IMF Direction of Trade Statistics provides critical data on the value of merchandise exports and imports between each country and all its trading partners. It reports total bilateral and multilateral exports and imports aggregated at national or regional group level. Total bilateral and multilateral exports and imports are aggregated at national or regional group level. For each reporting country or group, all the trading partners are listed. The corresponding monetary values of total imports and total exports are then provided as time series for each country / trading partner pair. All exports are valued free on board (f.o.b.). Imports are usually reported cost including insurance and freight (c.i.f.) although a small number of countries report imports f.o.b. Area and world aggregates showing trade flows between major areas of the world are presented as well. The DOT database contains detailed time series data from 1980.
World Economic Outlook (IMF WEO)
The WEO database contains selected macroeconomic data series from the statistical appendix of the World Economic Outlook report, which presents the IMF staff’s analysis and projections of economic developments at the global level, in major country groups and in many individual countries. The WEO is released in April and September/October each year. The database can be used to find data on national accounts, inflation, unemployment rates, balance of payments, fiscal indicators, trade for countries and country groups (aggregates), and commodity prices whose data are reported by the IMF. Data are available from 1980 to the present, and projections are given for the next two years. Additionally, medium-term projections are available for selected indicators.
IMF Financial Soundness Indicators (IMF FSI)
The Financial Soundness Indicators (FSIs) were developed by the IMF, together with the international community, with the aim of supporting macro prudential analysis and assessing strengths and vulnerabilities of financial systems. The data added consist of the following banking ratios for 100 countries: Regulatory Capital to Risk-Weighted Assets, Capital to Assets, Nonperforming Loans to Total Loans, Provisions to Nonperforming Loans and Return on Assets.
