Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

Published monthly since 1948, the International Financial Statistics (IFS) database is the principal statistical publication of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and is the standard source for all aspects of international and domestic finance. The database contains time series for over 200 countries and geographical areas. It reports, for most countries, time series data on exchange rates, balance of payments, international liquidity, money and banking, interest rates, prices, production, international transactions, government accounts, national accounts and population. Selected data, including data on Fund accounts, international reserves and international trade, are also aggregated into regional and world tables. Data is reported in a mixture of indexes, national currencies, US Dollars and SDRs (the basket currency the IMF uses as a unit of account) This database was first provided by the UK Data Service in December 2003.
