International Financial Statistics

The IMF International Financial Statistics database provides all time series from the International Monetary Fund's International Financial Statistics publication. Since it was first published in 1948, the IFS has been recognized as a leading source of comparable statistics on domestic and international finance for most countries of the world.


IMF International Financial Statistics provides data on exchange rates, international liquidity, money and banking, international transactions, consumer prices, production, government finance, interest rates, the balance of payments and key national accounts aggregates, for around 200 countries and regional groupings.

In addition, a set of comparative world and area tables is provided for exchange rates, Fund accounts, international reserves, monetary, interest rates, effective exchange rates, prices, production, trade and GDP.

The database contains over 80,000 time series. In dX format it also includes approximately 65,000 historical series from the old IFS database that the IMF decommissioned in September 2017.


IMF International Financial Statistics is updated weekly.


IMF International Financial Statistics is organized into two dX format databases, the first containing the series at the highest available frequency (monthly, quarterly or annual) and the second containing all annual series.
