Your Overview of Data Additions

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.
