New databases from World Bank and IMF, more in-depth data on Europe, and broader coverage of data for Asia.


New IMF and World Bank databases added

We have added two new databases to the application, Government Finance Statistics (GFS) from IMF, and Global Financial Development (GFD) from World Bank. Both of these databases can easily be located under the specific views for the sources, in the application.

The GFS statistics are issued quarterly, covering 145 IMF member countries. The database includes statistics on revenue, expenses, transactions in nonfinancial assets and financial assets and liabilities, as well as stocks of assets and liabilities of general government and its subsectors.

The GFD database form World Bank provides statistics of financial system characteristics from 206 economies. It includes measures of financial depth, access, efficiency, and stability. The data is provided on national and regional levels, and updated annually.

More in-depth European data

In the last two weeks, we have also added more data to our coverage of Europe. These additions are either in the form of providing more granular views of statistics, by adding new sub-categories, or providing alternative sources for indicators that are already covered. An example of the latter can be seen in the chart below.

Major expansion of emerging markets coverage, and IMF CPIS, LME COT Report and ECBC databases added.


Emerging Markets

In the last two weeks, we have substantially expanded our detailed coverage of emerging markets data. The latest additions were focused on banking and credit, government and public finance, foreign finance and national accounts data. The data was added for a broad range of countries, including, but not limited to Thailand, Panama, Kenya, Georgia, Mauritius, Armenia, and Azerbaijan, which is shown in the chart below. You’ll find links to access the data for each country in the list at the end of this post.

  • Equity and investment fund shares
  • Long-term debt instruments
  • Short term debt instruments

Below you have an example of data showing the distribution of China ’s investment across various countries.

CPIS data can be accessed directly via the IMF database in the application, or via the link provided at the end of the post.

Your Overview of Data AdditionsFeb 8, 2017

Expanding our coverage of sub-Saharan Africa, adding detailed datasets, and more time-series from the OECD MEI database.


Coverage of sub-Saharan Africa

When adding primary source data for countries, we start by creating a good, general foundation of the most basic and commonly used indicators, such as GDP, inflation, monetary aggregates and policy rates.


In the last two weeks, we’ve focused on building a robust coverage of countries in sub-Saharan Africa. With first-time additions for Botswana, Zimbabwe, Ghana, Gambia, and Senegal, as well as expanding coverage of South Africa. For a complete list of which countries, we’ve added data for, and links to the various indicators we have added, navigate to the end of this post.


Adding detailed datasets

In cases where we already provide broad coverage of emerging markets, the type of additions we make are often based on user requests. For example, we’ve added time series that provide a more detailed or nuanced understanding of unemployment statistics for Brazil, and banking and credit statistics for Argentina, as you can see in the charts below.

Your Overview of Data AdditionsJan 11, 2017

Three weeks of data additions for our first post of the new year


Welcome, and Welcome Back!

Now that everyone is back into the swing of things (just about), and before people depart for skiing (or surfing) trips, let’s get going with the data news again. Usually I write a little something about the data or the charts, but this week we’ll be keeping it short and simple, since we have three weeks’ worth of data additions to cover, and a few basics to introduce our new readers to.


When, where, how, and what

As before, we’ll be posting an update of data additions every second Wednesday to highlight any priorities or major projects our data team has been working on, as well as providing you with a list of links to access the data in the application. Once it’s released, you can open the news from the start page of the application. You can also receive the news by email. You’ll find a link to sign up, at the end of this article.

Below you’ll find four example charts. Go ahead and click on a chart to have it open in the application. As always, you’ll find a list of the data additions arranged alphabetically, by country or region, at the end of the post.

Do let us know if there is any data you would be interested in seeing in the application, our first priority in adding data is making sure that our users have access to the data they need, as quickly as possible.



Happy reading,

The News Team

More Intuitive Data NavigationDec 13, 2016

New features that will enhance the way you find data


The database is growing...

Over the last year, we've been working on making it more intuitive and efficient for users to find data in the application. Ongoing development and improvement is one of the cornerstones of the company, which is very clear when you look at our rapidly growing database.

Our policy is to accommodate user requests for data as often, and as quickly as possible. Since the launch of the application, our core data offering has evolved to cover everything from standard indicators for all countries, to a growing coverage of primary sources, more granular data, and even additions specific to current events.


Macrobond chart

But it’s also easier to navigate

If ongoing development and improvement is one of the cornerstones, then enhancing productivity is the raison d'etre of the application. No matter how much data we have or how many tools or features we add, these developments won't be worth anything if it becomes laborious or time consuming to make use of them.

And, with that said - let me present to you...


A recap of 2016's data navigation improvements

If you've had your head down hard at work all year, then this is a good chance to find out which improvements you might have missed. Who knows, if you make use of some of these, you might even be able to look up once in a while during 2017.


The Data Structure Project

Two focus areas

  • Restructuring the By Source view to present data using the same structure as the source. A gradual process, starting with certain categories for developed markets.
  • A scaling function to simplify the way you view this data, allowing you to customize which, and how much data is shown for a selected category. Read more here.

Replicating the source structure

To date we have restructured more than 320 releases for 38 different countries.

For China, for example, 26 releases from seven different sources have been restructured. Below is an example of SouFun CREIS Real Estate Hundred Cities.

Macrobond chart

SouFun CREIS Real Estate Hundred Cities


The focus for this project has been on releases in selected categories:

  • National Accounts
  • CPI
  • Balance of Payments
  • Banking & Credit

Other restructured releases not in these categories include but are not limited to:


Coming in 2017

Continued restructuring of releases for the Banking & Credit category

Prioritizing the Flow of Funds category

Introducing this structure to the By country view, where relevant


The By Concept view

What is it?

As the name suggests, it's a separate view of the economics database that allows you to navigate data by concept, such as Banking and Credit or Foreign Finance, for both national and international sources. Read more about it here. We have also added certain international sources that we believe users would benefit from viewing this way. None of these databases were included in the Economics database previously, and could only be viewed as distinct trees.


National Sources

Since the launch of this view, we have added a few new nodes for national sources, focusing on deepening granularity for:

  • GDP types
  • Inflation target rates
  • Monetary base

International Sources


For international sources (that users can find under All sources), we have added:

  • IMF IFS
  • UN World Population Prospects
  • Heritage Foundation data
  • World Bank Doing Business, BIS Credit and JEDH
  • OECD Quarterly National Accounts.
  • ECB data

Emerging & frontier markets, greater granularity for Spain & the UK, & a cost-of-living index for European cities


Expanded Coverage of Emerging and Frontier Markets

Those of you who have been following the data additions news for a while now will know that this is a recurring theme. While we don’t always mention it in the news, expanding our coverage of emerging markets is an ongoing project for our data teams. The most recent additions saw a substantial increase in coverage for this segment, with data being added for Bolivia, Malawi, Mongolia, Georgia, India, and Armenia.


Macrobond chart

National-source data for Rwanda and Uganda

Data from national sources has been added for these countries, and will continue to be expanded over time. The first additions focus on the most relevant economic indices such as CPI, national accounts, and foreign trade, amongst others. View the complete list of indices that have been added (with links to the data in the application) for the two countries, at the end of this post.


Increased granularity for UK & Spain

More granular banking and credit data is now available for Spain and the UK. For Spain, the additions include balance sheet and flows, deposits and loans, and profit and loss data, for two additional MFI categories. For the UK, the focus was on BOE/FCA MLAR Mortgage Lenders & Administrators Statistics.

Crowd-sourced cost-of-living data for European cities

Numbeo provides data from continuous, crowd-sourced inputs about, amongst other things, the cost of living. The data available in Macrobond covers European cities, and includes indices for the cost of living, rent, groceries, local purchasing power, and restaurant prices. It’s worth mentioning that New York has been used as a benchmark in calculating the indices, see the chart below for an example. You can read more about Numbeo’s methodology and calculations here.
