The IMF Country Reports Series covers economic and financial developments and trends in member countries. Each report, prepared by a staff team after discussions with officials of the country, is published at the option of the member.
This paper presents an update to the Report on the Observance of Standards and Codes for Bulgaria. In 2001-02, Bulgaria continued to use the common General Data Dissemination System (GDDS) as a framework for the further development and improvement in the quality of statistics. In June 2001, the country carried out the first update of the national metadata included in the electronic bulletin maintained by IMF. All existing tables were revised, and three new tables with metadata were developed.
