During the data revision, a number of activities were carried out, including the improvement of data sources, based on new statistical surveys and processing additional administrative data sources. as well as methodological changes, in accordance with the recommendations of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).


Data revision has been carried out since January 2023 by IMF experts, in Geostat. Thus, the revision includes the historical series since 2010.
