General Data Dissemination System
Welcome to the GDDS homepage. This site provides information on economic, financial and socio-demographic data disseminated by countries participating in the GDDS. Current statistical practices of each country are described, together with their plans to improve their statistical systems.
The GDDS is an evolutionary system reflecting changing needs of data users over time. Current operational features of the GDDS are as established in 1997 and amended by the IMF's Executive Board in March 2000, November 2001, November 2003, November 2005, and December 2008. Individual country presentations reflect the current features of the GDDS, as discussed in What is the GDDS?. It is expected that, as individual country presentations are updated (at least annually), any enhancements introduced to the system will be incorporated.
