IMF Financial Access Survey Database

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on November 1, 2012

“The FAS is the sole source of global supply-side data on financial inclusion, encompassing internationally-comparable basic indicators of financial access and usage. In addition to providing policy makers and researchers with annual geographic and demographic data on access to basic consumer financial services worldwide, the FAS is the data source for the G-20 Basic Set of Financial Inclusion Indicators endorsed by the G-20 Leaders at the Los Cabos Summit in June 2012. The FAS database currently contains annual data for 187 jurisdictions, including all G20 economies, covering an eight-year period (2004-2011), totaling more than 40,000 time series.”
