Abstract: This IFS online database provides statistical data on all aspects of international and domestic finance. It reports, for most countries of the world, current data needed in the analysis of problems of international payments and of inflation and deflation, i.e., data on exchange rates, international liquidity, international banking, money and banking, interest rates, prices, production, international transactions, government accounts, and national accounts. Information is presented in country tables and in tables of area and world aggregates. There are three types of frequencies for the data: monthly, quarterly and annual. The annual data generally begin in 1948, while the quarterly and monthly entries start in 1957.
