This paper is a summary assessment of Chile's data dissemination practices against the IMF's Special Data Dissemination Standard (SDDS) complemented by an in-depth assessment of the dimensions of data quality for the national accounts, prices, government finance, monetary, and balance-of-payments statistics. The Chilean agencies that produce these sets of statistics are the National Statistics Institute (INE), the Central Bank of Chile (BCCH), and the Ministry of Finance (MOF).
