Expansion of Balance of Payments Related Data Available in the BOJ Time-Series Data Search

April 10, 2017
Bank of Japan
International Department

For the Balance of Payments related statistics based on the sixth edition of the Balance of Payments and International Investment Position Manual (BPM6) published by the International Monetary Fund, only flow data are currently available in the BOJ Time-Series Data Search. Starting with the upcoming release of the International Investment Position of Japan in May 2017 (date and time to be determined), stock data will also be available in the BOJ Time-Series Data Search. In addition, data series in the BOJ Time-Series Data Search that are linked with historical data rearranged based on the BPM6 are presently available only for main items, but such linked time-series data will be expanded to sub-items as well.

In accordance with these changes, the data listed below will no longer be provided on the "Balance of Payments (Data Based on the BPM6 [Data from January 2014 onward])" page of the Bank of Japan's website.

The code for each data series used in the BOJ Time-Series Data Search is listed in the "List of Series Codes" below. When searching by series code, see the Beginners' Manual.
