IMF Government Finance Statistics, 1972 -

A Digital Object Identifier (DOI) is assigned to each international database every time there is an update to the data. The new DOI will resolve to this page containing a log of previous editions since the allocation of its first DOI. The DOI system supports resource discovery and simplifies citation for users of data collections. Data producers benefit directly through increased visibility of their work.

Abstract:

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) Government Finance Statistics (GFS) database provides current and internationally comparable annual time series data on the finances and fiscal policies of IMF member governments from 1990 onwards. The historical data runs from 1972-1989.

In April 2004, the IMF introduced a new classification system for the Government Finance Statistics that only supports data from 1990 onwards. The Government Finance Statistics Historical (1972 - 1989) contains data using the old classification system. The IMF produces the GFS Manual 2001 Companion Material which shows the relationships between the two classfication systems by describing the reclassification of all the GFSM 1986 classification categories to the GFSM 2001 classification categories. The historical data is only available in a bulk download format, and can be downloaded via links within the metadata on lastest edition of the IMF GFS.
