Special Data Dissemination Standard (SDDS)

 

The Special Data Dissemination Standard, a monitored standard, was established by the

International Monetary Fund (IMF) to guide member countries that have, or that might seek, access to international capital markets in the provision of their economic and financial data to the public.

 

A member country’s subscription to the SDDS is voluntary. However, it carries a commitment by the subscribing member to observe the Standard and to provide certain information to the IMF about its practices in disseminating economic and financial data.

 

The SDDS is part of the IMF’s Data Standards Initiatives for the compilation and dissemination of statistical data.

Metadata

A country which subscribes to the Special Data Dissemination Standard is expected to submit information about its data and dissemination practices. These are called ‘metadata’. SDDS metadata pertaining to each subscribing country are presented on the Dissemination Standards Bulletin Board (DSBB) of the IMF website. On its part, the subscribing country is responsible for ensuring the accuracy and timeliness of metadata updates.
