Abstract

7.1 This chapter discusses data sources provided by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and other international organizations that may be relevant for balance of payments and international investment position (IIP) compilation. The main feature of the data sources discussed in “IMF’s Bilateral Data Collections” and “Bilateral Data from Other International Organizations” is that they provide detailed geographical breakdown that may be used by the counterpart economy for balance of payments and IIP statistical purposes. “Other Datasets” describes other datasets that should be consistent with data reported in the international accounts.
