Change to "Payment and Settlement Statistics"

May 31, 2019
Payment and Settlement Systems Department
Bank of Japan

The Bank of Japan publishes the "Payment and Settlement Statistics" which shows the data on major Japanese payment and settlement systems, such as the volume and value of settlements.

From the release of "Payment and Settlement Statistics (April 2019)," the Bank has applied the following change to accommodate structural changes in the payment and settlement systems and to better meet user needs.

Addition of figures for debit card transactions
To enhance the statistics relating to retail payments, figures for debit card transactions have been added.

The definition and data collection method for the debit card figures in the "Payment and Settlement Statistics" are partly different from those presented in the Bank's Payment and Settlement Systems Report Annex Series, "Recent Trends of Debit Cards"(May 2017) and "Current Status of Cashless Payment"(September 2018) (both available only in Japanese).
