The [Monthly Monetary and Financial Statistics (MEI)] dataset is a subset of the [Main Economic Indicators] (MEI) database which contains predominantly monthly statistics, and associated statistical methodological information, for the 34 OECD member countries and the non—member countries: Brazil, China, India, Indonesia Russian Federation, and South Africa. The MEI database contains a wide variety statistics that can be classified as Short—Term Economic Statistics. The [Financial Indicators (MEI)] dataset itself contains financial statistics on five separate subjects: Monetary Aggregates, Interest Rates, Exchange Rates, Reserve Assets, and Share Prices. The data series presented within these subjects have been chosen as the most relevant financial statistics in the MEI database for which comparable data across countries is available. In all cases a lot of effort has been made to ensure that the data are internationally comparable across all countries presented and that all the subjects have good historical time—series’ data to aid with analysis. All data are available monthly, and are presented as either an index (where the year 2005 is the base year) or as a level depending on which measure is seen as the most appropriate and/or useful in the economic analysis context.
