    FSB and IMF Issue Progress Report on Phase Two of Data Gaps Initiative

    September 07, 2021

    The Financial Stability Board (FSB) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) published a report on implementation of the second phase of the G20 Data Gaps Initiative (DGI-2). The report outlines the progress in implementing the DGI-2 recommendations since the end of 2020. The report describes the work that is remaining for the completion of DGI-2 recommendations in December 2021. The report also provides an overview of the possible new data gaps initiative. The report shows that significant progress has been made in strengthening data collection for effective monitoring and policy responses, despite the challenges posed by COVID-19 pandemic.

    The main objective of DGI-2 is to implement the regular collection and dissemination of reliable and timely statistics for policy use. DGI-2 also includes new recommendations to reflect evolving policymaker needs. The DGI-2 twenty recommendations are clustered under three main headings: monitoring risk in the financial sector; vulnerabilities, interconnections, and spillovers; and data sharing and communication of official statistics. DGI-2 maintains continuity with the DGI-1 recommendations while setting more specific objectives for G20 economies to compile and disseminate minimum common datasets for these recommendations. The report highlights the following key points:

    • Significant progress has been achieved in closing identified policy-relevant data gaps during phases 1 and 2 of the Data Gaps Initiative.
    • The initiative has proved its value during the crisis triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic, helping policymakers to access key information in order to assess developments and risks in the financial and non-financial sectors, as well as to analyze interconnectedness and cross-border spillovers.
    • The pandemic continues to affect the DGI-2 work program. Given the limited time available, it is very likely that some recommendations will not be fully completed by the end of 2021. In particular, challenges are observed in: securities financing transaction data; institutional sectoral accounts; household distributional information; data on general government debt and operations; and commercial property price indices.
    • Participating economies continue to take forward the agreed DGI-2 recommendations, building on the collaboration and peer pressure mechanism. Participating economies and international organizations also recognize the need for a new international cooperation initiative on data gaps after the conclusion of the DGI at the end of 2021.
    • Building on the DGI process, the new initiative will focus on priorities of policy makers and avoid duplication with other existing initiatives. Four main statistical and data priorities to be covered by a possible new DGI have been identified as follows: climate change; household distributional information; fintech and financial inclusion data; and access to private sources of data and administrative data, and data sharing. A detailed workplan for the new initiative will be developed.
