This report focuses on the Monetary Statistics Component of the Regional Data Module Report on the Observance of Standards and Codes for the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB). The report reveals that with respect to the prerequisites of quality and assurances of integrity, the legislation broadly supports mandatory data reporting and the confidentiality of the reported data. However, the ECCB’s responsibility for compiling and disseminating monetary statistics to the public is not clearly specified in the law. Regarding resources, the number of staff allocated to the compilation of monetary statistics is inadequate.

This paper presents an Update to the Data Module of the Report on the Observance of Standards and Codes (ROSC) for Mozambique. Despite the improvements in recent years, limitations in the coverage of most core comprehensive frameworks and indicators recommended in the General Data Dissemination System (GDDS) still exist, including the absence of a manufacturing or industrial production index and labor market indicators. In addition, data on public and publicly guaranteed external debt are not disseminated with the recommended breakdown. However, most GDDS recommendations regarding periodicity and timeliness have been met.

Honduras’s Report on the Observance of Standards and Codes highlights Data Module, response by the authorities, and detailed assessments using the data quality assessment framework. Meeting General Data Dissemination System (GDDS) recommendations will also require disseminating production indices. To follow GDDS recommendations and facilitate eventual subscription to the Special Data Dissemination Standard, it would be important that key agencies move in the future with plans for improvement. To participate in the GDDS, the authorities would need to appoint a GDDS coordinator and commit to follow GDDS recommendations for selected data.
