BANKS AND BANKING--ENGLAND--STATISTICS--PERIODICALS

Abstract THIS HANDBOOK EXPLAINS WHY CENTRAL BANKS RATHER THAN NATIONAL STATISTICAL INSTITUTES TEND TO COLLECT DATA FROM THE BANKING SECTOR. IT PROVIDES AN OVERVIEW OF THE WIDE RANGE OF MONETARY AND FINANCIAL STATISTICS COLLECTED BY MOST CENTRAL BANKS, AS WELL AS THE MAIN USES OF THESE DATA. IN AN INCREASINGLY GLOBALISED FINANCIAL SYSTEM, SEVERAL STATISTICS COLLECTED BY CENTRAL BANKS ARE ONLY USEFUL IF SIMILAR STATISTICS ARE AVAILABLE FOR OTHER ECONOMIES. SO INTERNATIONAL HARMONISATION OF STATISTICAL FRAMEWORKS AND CO-OPERATION BETWEEN DATA COMPILERS IS ESSENTIAL. SUCH HARMONISATION TAKES PLACE AT THE EUROPEAN LEVEL, BUT ALSO GLOBALLY. THIS HANDBOOK ALSO DISCUSSES INTERNATIONALLY AGREED INDICATORS THAT CAN BE USED TO ASSESS THE QUALITY OF ECONOMIC STATISTICS COLLECTED BY CENTRAL BANKS AND NATIONAL STATISTICAL INSTITUTES ALIKE. IT CONTAINS SEVERAL EXAMPLES OF DATA COLLECTION PROCESSES AT THE BANK OF ENGLAND.
