Abstract

The 2019 Financial Soundness Indicators Compilation Guide (2019 Guide) includes new indicators to expand the coverage of the financial sector, including other financial intermediaries, money market funds, insurance corporations, pension funds, nonfinancial corporations, and households. In all, the 2019 Guide recommends the compilation of 50 FSIs—13 of them new. Additions such as new capital, liquidity and asset quality metrics, and concentration and distribution measures will serve to enhance the forward-looking aspect of FSIs and contribute to increase policy focus on stability of the financial system.

Abstract

El índice de precios al productor (PPI) mide la tasa a la cual varían con el tiempo los precios de producción de bienes y servicios. Es una estadística fundamental para las decisiones económicas y empresariales y para seguir la evolución de la inflación. El Manual del índice de precios al productor: Teoría y práctica proporciona directrices claras y actualizadas sobre los conceptos, usos, métodos y teoría económica del IPP, incluyendo información sobre clasificaciones, fuentes, técnicas de compilación y usos analíticos del IPP. Este Manual reemplaza a las anteriores directrices internacionales sobre el IPP (incluidas en el Manual de índices de precios al productor de bienes industriales, publicado por la División de Estadística de las Naciones Unidas en 1979). El marco conceptual del Manual se deriva del Sistema de Cuentas Nacionales 1993 y de la evolución reciente de la teoría de números índice. La preparación del Manual fue emprendida por el Grupo Interinstitucional de Trabajo sobre Estadísticas de Precios a través de un grupo de expertos técnicos presidido por el FMI e integrado por representantes de la OIT, la OCDE, la Comisión Económica de las Naciones Unidas para Europa, el Banco Mundial, oficinas nacionales de estadística e instituciones académicas.

Abstract

L'indice des prix à la production (IPP) mesure le rythme auquel les prix des biens et services de production évoluent au fil du temps. C'est une statistique essentielle pour les décisions économiques et commerciales et pour surveiller l'inflation. Le manuel de l’indice des prix à la production présente des orientations claires et actualisées sur les concepts, les utilisations, les méthodes et la théorie économique de cet indice, dont des informations sur les classifications, les sources, les techniques de compilation et les applications statistiques de l'indice. Ce manuel remplace le Manuel d’indices des prix à la production pour les biens industriels, publié en 1979 par la Commission de statistique des Nations Unies. Le cadre conceptuel du manuel est issu du Système de comptabilité nationale 1993 et de récentes avancées dans la théorie des indices. La rédaction du manuel, organisée par le Groupe de travail intersecrétariats sur les statistiques des prix, a été entreprise par un groupe d'experts techniques présidé par le FMI et comportant des représentants du BIT, de l'OCDE, de la Commission économique des Nations Unies pour l’Europe, de la Banque mondiale, d'instituts statistiques nationaux et du monde universitaire.

Abstract

The producer price index (PPI) measures the rate at which the prices of producer goods and services are changing overtime. It is a key statistic for economic and business decision making and inflation monitoring. The Producer Price Index Manual: Theory and Practice provides clear, up-to-date guidance on the concepts, uses, methods, and economic theory of the PPI, including information on classifications, sources, compilation techniques, and analytical uses of the PPI. The Manual supersedes the previous international guidance on PPIs (available in the Manual on Producers’ Price Indices for Industrial Goods, published by the United Nations Statistics Division in 1979). The Manual's conceptual framework derives from the System of National Accounts1993 and recent developments in index number theory. Preparation of the Manual was undertaken by the Intersecretariat Working Group on Price Statistics through a technical expert group chaired by the IMF and involving representatives from the ILO, the OECD, the UN Economic Commission for Europe, the World Bank, national statistical offices, and academic institutions.

Abstract

This paper describes the functions, policies, and operations of the IMF. The IMF is an independent international organization, and is a cooperative of 185 member countries, whose objective is to promote world economic stability and growth. The member countries are the shareholders of the cooperative, providing the capital of the IMF through quota subscriptions. In return, the IMF provides its members with macroeconomic policy advice, financing in times of balance-of-payments need, and technical assistance and training to improve national economic management.
