The SARB compiles high-quality economic and financial statistics based on international best practice for use by policymakers, financial market participants and the general public. These statistics inform the SARB’s monetary policy decisions and are regularly updated. They can be found online and in various SARB publications, along with a detailed analysis thereof.
The Quarterly Bulletin analyses domestic and international economic and financial market developments. It also contains statistical tables and notes on methodological statistical issues, and examines topics relevant at the time of publication.
Guides are aimed specifically at businesses and companies, providing them with guidelines for completing surveys and returns based on correct macroeconomic statistics principles required by the SARB. The classification guide allows respondents to classify counterparties to any transaction into correct institutional sectors.
