Use filters above the table

Use the search box to enter key words; use quotes around your term for better results.

While all indicators are available for annual periods, only a subset are available as monthly or quarterly.

Data available in the Excel summary files are for indicators only (not available for countries or regions) for selected classification items for 2010 onward for annual data and 2018 onward for short-term indicators. For historical data or additional classifications, either use the Data Explorer or download the CSV file.
