Although the Map & Data Library is physically closed, we are still available remotely and happy to help. We can conduct consultations using online teleconferencing software. Please feel free to contact us at or use our help form. We have a number of tutorials available, are still supplying software licenses, and have compiled a list of resources for working with COVID-19 data.

Please note that our computer lab is also accessible for use through remote access. See this link for more information.

Creditor Reporting System (CRS), 1973-1998

Detailed data for long- and short-term debt stocks and service payments. Data are available for major country group, individual countries, and territories. The Creditor Reporting System (CRS) is an information system comprised of data on Official Development Assistance (ODA) and Official Aid (OA). The system has been in existence since 1967 and is sponsored jointly by the OECD and the World Bank, and operated by the OECD. A subset of the CRS consists of individual grant and loan commitments (between 6000-30000 transactions a year) submitted by DAC donors (22 Members) and multilateral institutions on a regular basis. Reporters are asked to supply (in their national currency), detailed financial information on the commitment (to the developing country) such as: terms of repayment (for loans), tying status and sector allocation. The secretariat converts the amounts of the projects into US dollars using the annual average exchange rates.
