The Central Bank compiles, enters, and processes statistical data. The statistics are divided into three categories. 

Financial institutions’ statistics include economic variables pertaining to firms and institutions operating in the domestic financial market.

Financial market statistics show developments in interest rates, exchange rates, interbank market turnover, and payment intermediation, in addition to issuance and stock of market securities and derivatives contracts.

Statistics on the balance of payments and international investment position relate to Iceland’s foreign trade. The balance of payments shows trade between residents and non-residents over a specified period, and the international investment position summarises the position between residents and non-residents at the end of the period.

Statistics are published in accordance with a predetermined schedule and are posted at 16:00 hrs. on the publication date.
