The Balance of Payments provides a framework that is applicable for a range of economies, from the smallest and least developed economies to the more advanced and complex economies. As a result, it is recognized that some items may not be relevant in all cases. The balance of payments is a statistical statement that summarizes transactions between residents and nonresidents during a period. It consists of the goods and services account, the primary income account, the secondary income account, the capital account, and the financial account.
Balance of Payments Statistics (BOPS) is accessible online from the IMF e-LIBRARY. The U of T Map & Data Library also holds come editions on CD-ROM
