Implementation of new data sources for statistics on securities continues

In connection with the Q3 2021 publication, the Balance of Payments and the National Accounts will take a further step toward the implementation of new data sources. This step involves the following:

  • Data for transactions from statistics on securities is collected from the database on securities holdings (VINN) and the Swedish securities database (SVDB).
  • The VINN database is also used for debt securities in the reserve assets.
  • These changes have been introduced in the Balance of Payments as from the first quarter of 2021.
  • In connection with these adjustments, data from VINN and SVDB are also used for the balance as from the first quarter of 2021.

These changes will lead to a time series break between Q4 2020 and Q1 2021. Statistics Sweden will gradually address this break in the time series.
