The Data: Coverage, Periodicity, and Timeliness

Coverage characteristics

The table shows assets and liabilities as at end of month in millions of New Zealand dollars. All assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currency are converted into New Zealand dollars at the relevant exchange rates at balance date. The data starts from December 2001.

The table excludes New Zealand accounts with the IMF. IMF accounts are managed by the Debt Management Office at the New Zealand Treasury and can be accessed at www.treasury.govt.nz

R2 presents balance sheet accounts by instrument and currency. The format follows guidelines described in the Monetary and Financial Statistics Manual (IMF 2000) and Compilation Guide (IMF 2008), modified to meet confidentiality requirements. Some items common to R2 and the accounting balance sheet may differ in value due to methodological and presentational differences.

The relevant financial instruments are:

  • Monetary gold and SDR
  • Currency and Deposits
  • Securities other than shares
  • Loans
  • Shares and other equity
  • Financial derivatives
  • Other accounts payable/receivable
  • Nonfinancial assets
