We publish statistics on the monetary and financial system which are relevant to our policy and regulatory responsibilities

Data and statistics by theme

Effective interest rates

Each month the Bank publishes data on effective interest rates. These show average interest rates across households and businesses deposit or loan accounts with UK banks and building societies.

Financial markets, income, and external business

The Bank publishes regular statistics on financial markets, MFIs’ income and expenditure, and MFIs’ external balance sheet. These include quarterly data on UK-owned MFIs’ consolidated worldwide claims, and quarterly data on UK resident MFIs’ income and expenditure, financial derivative positions, and claims and liabilities with non-residents. The Bank also publishes monthly estimates of capital issuance where UK resident MFIs act as the issuing agents.

Regulatory data

This section includes data on mortgage lending activities, data on levels of capital and risk-weighted assets for the UK banking sector, and credit union statistics. 

Option-implied probability density functions

We publish weekly estimates of probability density functions for future values of the FTSE 100 index and short sterling interest rates.

Yield curves

The Bank publishes daily estimated yield curves for the UK. We produce three types of estimated yield curves: a set based on UK Government Bonds, a set based on sterling interbank rate (LIBOR) and instruments linked to LIBOR, and a set based on sterling overnight index swap (OIS) rates.

Gold and banknotes

Our data includes how much gold we look after and how many of our banknotes are in circulation.

Data quality

Statistical Code of Practice

The Statistical Code of Practice sets out our standards for the collection, compilation and dissemination of monetary, financial and regulatory data. These standards are similar to the ones used by the UK Statistics Authority.

Data Quality Framework

Definitions of statistical data quality are maintained by international bodies such as the International Monetary Fund, the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe and the European Statistical System. The Data Quality Framework (2014) describes how we interprets statistical data quality concepts in our published statistics.

Cost benefit analysis

In 2005-06 we looked at the balance of costs between reviewing existing statistical outputs regularly and assessing new statistics. We wanted to create more considered assessments but had to balance that with the reporter’s compliance costs. Our approach is explained in the Cost-benefit analysis of monetary and financial statistics (2006). The principle of assessing the balance between costs and benefit when we produce statistics still applies.
