IMF Resources on Trial

We currently have several databases on trial (find the list and access points here), including the IMF eLibrary. The highlight of the IMF resources is the statistical databases, which includes the following:

  • International Financial Statistics (IFS): all aspects of international and domestic finance, with history to 1948
  • Balance of Payments Statistics (BOPS): international economic transactions data and International Investment Position, with history to 1960
  • Direction of Trade Statistics (DOTS): statistics on the value of merchandise exports and imports between each country and all its trading partners, with history to 1948
  • Government Finance Statistics (GFS): budgetary and extra-budgetary financial operations data of governments, with history to 1990

This database allows you to query across datasets, query withing datasets, or choose predefined data reports.
