International trade and balance of payments statistics

Trade in services: questionnaires

 

Countries are requested every year by OECD (in December of year t) to update two questionnaires (either in EBOPS 2002 or EBOPS 2010 format) up to year t-1. The two questionnaires are asking for following information:

 

  • Detailed trade in services by partner country which include EBOPS items and compensation of employees and worker's remittances for the analyses of remittances
  • Detailed trade in services statistics with partner world which includes some main BOP aggregates and all EBOPS memorandum items.

Countries are also requested to update a metadata file (click here to see example) which is shared with Eurostat to what regards EU countries.

Reporting Annual International Trade in Services (AITS) data to the OECD in SDMX format

The OECD is actively promoting the use of SDMX as an efficient data transmission mechanism. A document describing how to report AITS data to the OECD in SDMX format can be found here (docx).

The BPM6_ITS_A data flow which corresponds to the data requested in the EBOPS 2010 questionnaire, using the codes of the BOP-DSD, is available here in Excel format. Note these tables are subject to change and are not in their final format at this point.
