Financial Development Index [FDI]

Description

The dataset contains nine indices that summarize how developed financial institutions and financial markets are in terms of their depth, access, and efficiency. These indices are aggregated into an overall index of financial development. With the coverage of over 180 countries on annual frequency from 1980 onwards, the database should offer a useful analytical tool for researchers and policy makers.

Notes
  • Temporal Coverage: Annual data starting from 1980 onwards
  • Geographic Coverage: Over 180 advanced, emerging, and low-income developing countries
  • Methodology: The financial development index is constructed using a standard three-step approach on reducing multidimensional data into one summary index: (i) normalization of variables; (ii) aggregation of normalized variables into the sub-indices representing a particular functional dimension; and (iii) aggregation of the sub-indices into the final index (OECD Handbook on Constructing Composite Indicators, 2008). For details, please refer to the IMF Working Paper 1605
  • Sectoral Coverage: A set of key indicators is chosen to capture the different aspects of the financial system characteristics.
