Increased coverage from the Central Bank of the West African States

We’ve recently added more indicators from the Central Bank of the Western African States. This Central Bank covers the West African Economic & Monetary Union (UEMOA), which includes 8 African countries: Benin, Burkina-Faso, Guinea-Bissau, Ivory Coast, Mali, Niger, Senegal, and Togo.

The datasets added for each country are:

  • Central Bank Balance Sheet
  • Business Climate Indicator
  • Financial Services Index
  • Monetary Aggregates
  • Net External Assets
  • Services Trade Turnover

In the chart below, we calculated an average Business Climate Indicator for the Union, together with various statistics.


Malaysia: Islamic Banks Deposits

For Malaysia, we’ve added Islamic Banks Deposits. The dataset is then broken-down per deposit’s type.

In the chart below, we displayed the total amount for each deposit’s type. One interesting element that appears in the substantial increase of ‘Tawarruq’ over the last four years, taking over Special and General Investment Deposits.


Indonesia: Monthly Expenditures per capita

In the past two weeks, we’ve added various datasets on Indonesia, covering Households Monthly Expenditures. The dataset is broken-down per income group, and rural or urban areas.

In the bar chart below, we compared the spendings profiles of the wealthiest income group (earning more than 1,500,000 INR / year) versus the poorest one (earning less than 150,000 INR / year).


Singapore: Participation Rate

For Singapore, we’ve added Participation Rate, per age group and gender.
