Definitions and Concepts Behind the IMF Balance of Payments Yearbooks compiled by Siobhán Caruso-Tuthill

The Balance of Payments Yearbooks published by the International Monetary Fund are compiled based upon information provided by individual countries and gathered according to specifics set by the Fund itself in the Balance of Payments Manual. Just as there are several editions of the Manual, the resulting publications have gone through many revisions with respect both to the manner of presentation and what information is included in the various numbers presented. Consequently, it is necessary to specify what the information in the data set related to these publications refers to and how that information changes with the revisions of the Balance of Payments Yearbooks.
