The International Finance Statistics (IFS) is one of the IMF's principal statistical datasets and has been available since January 1948.

IFS contains country data for most Fund members, as well as for Anguilla, Aruba, the Central African Economic and Monetary Community (CEMAC), Curacao, the currency union of Curacao and Sint Maarten, the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union (ECCU), the Euro Area, Montserrat, the former Netherlands Antilles, Sint Maarten, the West African Economic Monetary Union (WAEMU), West Bank and Gaza, and some non-sovereign territorial entities for which statistics are provided internationally on a separate basis.

Available indicators normally include a country's exchange rates, Fund position, international liquidity, monetary statistics, interest rates, prices, production, labour, international transactions, government accounts, national accounts, and population.

IFS covers 232 countries and areas.

Under the Fund’s legal framework, the member in effective control of a territory must report data respecting that territory. With respect to data on any territory whose status is the subject of a dispute between members, the IMF’s use of data on that territory provided by a member, either for surveillance or any other Fund activities, does not constitute a judgment by the IMF on the status of that territory.
