Balance of payments BPM5 (Edition 2015)

Balance of payments (BOP) statistics are included in this dataset as well as a systematic summary of economic transactions of an economy with the rest of the world, for a specific time period. Balance of payments transactions are further divided into their respective components: current account, capital and financial account and errors and omissions. Data are expressed in national currency, US Dollars or percentage of GDP and are recorded from 1949. Member countries currently producing international trade and balance of payments data according to BPM5 will switch to BPM6 by end 2015.
