The chapters in this part of the book deal successively with the debt statistics of:
- – The BIS (Chapter IV);
- – The IMF (Chapter V);
- – The OECD (Chapter VI);
- – The World Bank (Chapter VII).
To facilitate comparison between the systems, the chapters are identically structured, to the extent possible. This means that readers will find the treatment of “undisbursed or contingent amounts”, for example, in section 2.4.3 of each chapter.
Two synoptic tables, comparing various features of the different systems, will be found at the end of Part II. The summary nature of the information that can be contained in these tables means that they should be treated as a guide to, not a substitute for, the detailed description given in the organisation chapters themselves.
