The work of the Economic Intelligence Department

Quarterly Bulletin 1976 Q4
Published on 01 December 1976

This article is one of a series covering the various departments of the Bank.

The account of present arrangements is prefaced with a short history of economic and statistical work in the Bank.

Between the wars the Bank collected and published a considerable body of general economic statistics, for which responsibility has subsequently passed to the statistical offices of government departments. The Bank's more specifically economic work was on a very limited scale until some fifteen years after the Second World War. Indeed, until that time the Bank appeared positively averse to economics; and the work consisted very largely in the compilation of balance of payments statistics.
