Data dissemination standards (SDDS)

Data dissemination standards are important because they help enhance the availability of timely and comprehensive statistics, which contributes to the pursuit of sound macroeconomic policies and efficient functioning of financial markets. At the Eighth Review of the Fund’s Data Standards Initiatives in February 2012, the IMF’s Executive Board approved several enhancements to the SDDS and endorsed the creation of the SDDS Plus (described below).
