International standards on Securities Statistics
The joint Handbook on Securities Statistics, from the Bank for International Settlements, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund provides the conceptual framework for the compilation and presentation of securities statistics. It describes the main features of debt and equity securities, looks at institutional units and sectors as issuers and holders of securities, and discusses the statistical recording rules to be applied for use in monetary policy formulation and financial stability analysis.
