Latest actual data: 2011. The current account deficit in 2011 is based on officially published data as of September 6, 2012. It will likely be revised to about 3% of GDP due to a correction in the income balance to account for the valuation effects of the Greek PSI.
Notes: The large break in the series for 1998 is attributed to a significant increase in Income Debits for 1998. The authorities have verified that this is correct. BOP data starting in 2008 have been revised in 2011.
