Updated IMF Quota Data—September 2009
Last Updated: June 18, 2012
In its April 2009 Communiqué, the International Monetary and Financial Committee (IMFC) called for a prompt start to the Fourteenth General review of Quotas so that it is completed by January 2011—some two years ahead of schedule. As part of this process, IMF staff has updated individual member country data for the variables used in the new quota formula for the period 1995-2007; the tables also include the comparable value of each variable for the previous quota update, which was based on data covering the period 1993-2005. The information is presented in millions of SDRs (Table A1) and in percent of their respective global totals (Tables A2).
A table showing calculated quota shares based on the new quota formula is also included (Table A3). The new formula provides a simpler and more transparent means of capturing members' relative positions in the global economy and includes a GDP variable, which is a blend of GDP at market rates and GDP at PPP exchange rates, openness, variability, and international reserves (see Box 1 in Reform of Quota and Voice in the International Monetary Fund-Draft Report of the Executive Board to the Board of Governors).
