Updated IMF Quota Data—May 2012
Last Updated: May 11, 2012
The Board of Governors has requested the Executive Board to complete a comprehensive review of the quota formula by January 2013 (see IMF Executive Board Begins Review of Quota Formula). This review is an important element of the 2010 quota and governance reforms. As part of this review, the IMF staff has updated individual member country data for the variables used in the quota formula for the period 1997-2009; the tables include the comparable value of each variable for the previous quota dataset, which was based on data covering the period 1996-2008. The information is presented in millions of SDRs (Table A1) and in percent of their respective global totals (Tables A2 and A3).
A table showing calculated quota shares (CQS) based on the quota formula is also included (Table A4). The current quota formula 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 Reform of Quota and Voice in the International Monetary Fund-Draft Report of the Executive Board to the Board of Governors).
