Detailed tabulations of international and domestic finance data are presented in this data collection. These time series data summarize each country's balance of payments, with collateral data on major financial components such as trade and reserves, and data on exchange rates, international liquidity, money and banking, international transactions, prices, production, government finance, and interest rates. A subset of these data, containing annual data from 1948 to 1978, is available as well.

ICPSR obtained these data from the International Monetary Fund under the terms of a contract which states that the data are for the sole use of ICPSR and may not be sold or provided to third parties outside of the ICPSR membership. Individuals at institutions which are not members of the ICPSR may obtain these data directly from the IMF.


1948 -- 1991
  1. (1)The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has notified ICPSR that it will not renew ICPSR's INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL STATISTICS (IFS) (ICPSR 7629) monthly tape subscription effective November 1, 1991. This action coincides with IMF's decision to begin distributing this series to individuals on CD-ROM. As a result ICPSR will not be able to update these data on a monthly basis. The IFS data for the 1948 through July, 1991 period will continue to be available from ICPSR\; this is the last version of the data received under our former subscription. Efforts will continue to renew the monthly subscription with IMF and users will be notified when such efforts are successful. (2) The data are stored in packed zoned decimal format. A COBOL processing program is available for use with this dataset. (3) Each time series can contain a variable number of logical records. The exact number of records in any time series in this collection is dependent upon the availability of annual, quarterly, and monthly data. Approximately 23,000 time series are included in the collection. (4) The term "country," as used in this dataset, does not in all cases refer to a territorial entity which is a state as understood by international law and practice. The term also covers some territorial entities that are not states but for which statistical data are maintained and provided internationally on a separate and independent basis. (5) Exchange rates are expressed in United States dollars per national currency unit or vice versa, and two rates are given for the special drawing right (SDR) value of the national currency unit. (6) One codebook now documents these four IMF studies: DIRECTION OF TRADE (ICPSR 7628), INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL STATISTICS (ICPSR 7629), BALANCE OF PAYMENTS STATISTICS (ICPSR 8623), and GOVERNMENT FINANCE STATISTICS (ICPSR 8624). (7) The codebook is provided by ICPSR as a Portable Document Format (PDF) file. The PDF file format was developed by Adobe Systems Incorporated and can be accessed using PDF reader software, such as the Adobe Acrobat Reader. Information on how to obtain a copy of the Acrobat Reader is provided on the ICPSR Web site.
