World Bank replaces GDF with new International Debt Statistics database

The World Bank has relaunched its major international debt database as International Debt Statistics. Formerly known as Global Development Finance, the new database provides statistics on the external debts of 128 countries in the World Bank’s Debtor reporting System. IDS combines observations from the World Bank’s ‘Quarterly External Debt Statistics’ and ‘Quarterly Public Sector Debt’ publications. For details, visit this EUI Library page. A presentation of IDS, and other macro data resources, takes place in the Library training room at 13:30 on Tuesday, 19 March.
