The Balance of Payments statistics describe economic transactions between residents of Norway and non-residents. They are an integrated part of the National Accounts using the same principles and definitions, and give an exact mirror image of the sector "Rest of The World" in the National Accounts.
The Norwegian Balance of Payments is presented in accordance with the latest internationally approved guidelines, as specified in the IMF's "Balance of Payments Manual, 6th edition" (BPM6), which uses principles and definitions as per the UN-IMF manual "System of National Accounts 2008" (SNA 2008), and the EU's manual "European System of Accounts 2010" (ESA 2010).
The Balance of Payments consists of three main parts:
Revised annual data are published about 11 months after the accounting year, and final annual data about 23 months after. Quarterly data are subsequently reconciled with the final annual data.
