Statistical Yearbooks of the International Monetary Fund

The 1981 yearbooks for all four statistical publications of the International Monetary Fund are now available. Regular subscriptions to the individual publications include the yearbooks, which may also be purchased through a combined statistical yearbook package, at a combined rate of US$32.00.*

International Financial Statistics (IFS) is a standard source of statistics on all aspects of domestic and international finance. The latest yearbook, published in September 1981, reports up to 30 years of annual data (1951-80) for some 125 countries. Its contents and format are consistent with the monthly issues of IFS, which report the available monthly, quarterly, and annual data for the most current years. Single copies of the yearbook are US$10.00; full subscriptions to IFS (12 monthly issues, two topical supplements, and the yearbook) are US$35.00.

Balance of Payments Statistics (BOPS) brings together balance of payments statistics for about 110 countries that report their data to the Fund. The latest BOPS yearbook, published toward the end of 1981, is issued in two parts. Part I provides data for each country covered, for the eight years ended 1980, plus tables containing additional details and descriptive notes. Part II presents topical tables that aggregate these standardized and internationally comparable statistics by areas and for the world. Single copies of the two-part yearbook are US$8.00; full subscriptions to BOPS (12 monthly issues plus the yearbook) are US$26.00.

Direction of Trade Statistics (DOTS) provides data on the country and area distribution of all countries’ exports and imports. The latest yearbook, published in July 1981, reports seven years of annual data (1974-80) for 155 countries and two sets of world and area summary tables. Single copies of the yearbook are US$6.00; full subscriptions to DOTS (12 monthly issues plus the yearbook) are US$21.00.

The Government Finance Statistics Yearbook provides detailed data on revenue, grants, expenditure, lending, financing, and debt of central governments, and indicates the amounts represented by social security funds and extrabudgetary operations. Summary data are given for state and local governments. The Yearbook also lists the various parts of governments, the enterprises and financial institutions they own and control, and the national sources of data. Comparative data by country and area are shown in world tables. Volume V, published in August 1981, contains information for 123 countries, with up to ten years of data extending through 1979 or 1980 for most countries. The price of the Yearbook is US$13.00.

Special rates for the Fund’s statistical publications are available to university libraries, faculty, and students. Each statistical publication of the Fund is also available in machine readable form. Prices are quoted in U.S. dollars, but payment may be made in other currencies.
