IMF World Economic Outlook (IMF WEO), 1980 -

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.


The World Economic Outlook (WEO) database contains selected   macroeconomic data series from the statistical  appendix of the World   Economic Outlook report,  which presents the IMF staff's analysis and   projections of economic  developments at the  global level, in major   country groups and in many  individual countries.

This database can be used to find data on national accounts, inflation, unemployment rates, balance of payments, fiscal indicators, trade for countries and country groups (aggregates), and commodity prices whose data are reported by the IMF.
