Publication Date: April 05, 2006
Summary: The Balance of Payments Statistics (BOPS) CD-ROM derives from the Balance of Payments Statistics Yearbook; therefore, it contains balance of payments and international investment position data of individual countries, regional and world totals for major components of the balance of payments, and descriptions of methodologies, compilation practices, and data sources used by selected reporting countries. In addition to corresponding series and tables within the Balance of Payments Statistics Yearbook, the BOPS CD-ROM contains data as reported by the balance of payments correspondents to the IMF Statistics Department. The BOPS CD-ROM incorporates a Windows-based browser facility, as well as the flat file of the database in scientific notation. The new browser software provides a familiar and easy-to-use Windows interface for browsing the database, selecting series of interest, displaying the selected series in a spreadsheet format, and saving the selected series for transfer to other software systems, such as Microsoft Excel.
