International Monetary Fund Now Provides Free Statistical Data

Posted on January 19, 2015

On January 12, 2015, to support the move to free data, the Fund introduced a new more user-friendly platform that will improve on-line dissemination.

The new platform can be found at data.imf.org.  Find this link in Databases A-Z, under the title of IMF Data.

The site includes portals and dynamic visualization to showcase datasets. These datasets are:

  • International Financial Statistics,
  • Balance of Payment Statistics,
  • Government Finance Statistics,
  • Direction of Trade Statistics, and
  • Trade and Investment.

The data covers the years 2005 - current.

Trent University Library previously subscribed to this data in print form only.  This moves allows us to cancel print subscriptions, free up shelf space used to store print material, and offer online access to the data.
