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

Periodicity

Monthly

Timeliness

Data is released on the second to last working day of the month.

Access by the public

Statistics release calendar

The "Statistics Release Calendar" provides a long-term plan of scheduled releases. It is updated and released on the first working day of the month.

Integrity

Dissemination of terms and conditions under which official statistics are produced, including confidentiality of individual responses

The information is disseminated by the Reserve Bank as a service to the public in a format that preserves the confidentiality of transactions. The function and operations of the Reserve Bank are governed by the Reserve Bank Act 1989.

Provision of information about revisions and advance notice of major changes in methodology

Provisional data are italicised. Data are deemed provisional when a series is under review. New data, or revised data, are in bold font.
This applies to the summary table only and not excel files. Revisions are generally published when the table is next due to be updated and released. Should revisions need to be made more promptly, a special note is posted on the website.

Any major changes in methodology will be posted as a special note.

Quality

Dissemination of documentation on methodology and sources used in preparing statistics

The statistical data are prepared using guidelines contained in the Monetary and Financial Statistics Manual (IMF 2000) and subsequent Compilation Guide (IMF 2008) available from www.imf.org.

A provision for dividend for 2017 will be included in the Reserve Bank Statistical Balance sheet (R2) and Reserve Bank Analytical Accounts (R3) after the Bank’s Annual Report is published in October. In the intervening period, no provision for dividend is included.

The new format for our Excel data files will be rolled out to the Reserve Bank Statistical Balance sheet (R2) and Reserve Bank Analytical Accounts (R3) on 28 July 2017.

The most notable changes in the Excel data files will be:

  • No extra columns, bold numbers, merged cells or any other formatting. This will make it easier for data users to transform the file into other ‘machine friendly’ formats such as .csv.
  • Two extra tabs – ‘Table Description’ and ‘Series Definitions’ that will contain supplementary information about the table and the data.
  • The data tab will have two extra rows: unit and series ID linked to the Series Definitions.

There will be no change to the presentation of summary data in the summary tab.
