This CD-ROM contains information international trade in services broken down by detailed service category for the OECD, EU and BRIICS countries. The data are based on the fifth edition of the IMF's Balance of Payments Manual and the Extended Balance of Payments Services Classification (EBOPS) which is consistent with the balance of payments classification but is more detailed. For each of the main service category, zone totals are provided for the G7, NAFTA, OECD-Asia and Pacific, OECD-Europe and OECD total. Series are shown in national currency, million US dollars and million euros. Most data cover the period 1985-2007 with extended data also provided for 1970-2007 where available.
The database uses Beyond 20/20TM, a user-friendly WindowsTM-based software that allows the user to extract data and build customised tools for analysis such as graphs and tables. Technical documentation on the software and the statistics is included in AcrobatTM format.
