Data presentation - Summary description

The IDCS dataset covers publicly available selected sector accounts data as published by Eurostat, OECD and the UN. 

It is a result of a regular data exchange set up by the International Data Cooperation (IDC) initiative under the Inter-Agency Group on Economic and Financial Statistics (IAG) chaired by the IMF. The aim is to develop a set of commonly shared principles and working arrangements for data cooperation that could be implemented by the participating International Organisations, leading to improved timeliness and accuracy of published data ( link )
