The following symbols have been used throughout this paper:

  • …to indicate that data are not available;
  • —to indicate that the figure is zero or less than half the final digit shown, or that the item does not exist;
  • –between years or months (e.g., 1994–95 or January–June) to indicate the years or months covered, including the beginning and ending years or months;
  • / between years (e.g., 1994/95) to indicate a crop or fiscal (financial) year.

“Billion” means a thousand million.

Minor discrepancies between constituent figures and totals are due to rounding.

The term “country,” as used in this paper, does not in all cases refer to a territorial entity that is a state as understood by international law and practice; the term also covers some territorial entities that are not states, but for which statistical data are maintained and provided internationally on a separate and independent basis.


We are indebted for useful comments and suggestions to Thomas Rumbaugh, Philippe Callier, Edward Frydl, Balázs Horváth, Vitale Kramarenko, Tola May, Johannes Mueller, Gabriel Sensenbrenner, and other IMF colleagues. We are grateful to Chanthana Neav from the National Bank of Cambodia for providing data and insightful comments, to Marc Paoletti (IMF resident advisor in Cambodia) for budgetary data, and to Paolo Guarda (Central Bank of Luxembourg) for comments. Chenda Pich and Myrna Bas offered superb secretarial assistance. Jeff Hayden of the External Relations Department edited the manuscript and coordinated its production. We bear responsibility for any remaining errors. The views expressed in this Occasional Paper are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent those of the IMF or IMF policy.
