Bangladesh Bank Open Data Initiative

Bangladesh Bank took another step forward in making its vast repository of data accessible to the general public. Data from the Monthly Economic Trends publication can now be easily downloaded by anyone interested, free of cost, into an Excel file . This includes detailed data, some dating back almost twenty years, on balance of payments, money supply, various consumer price indices, national accounts, stock price indices, interest rates, remittances, exchange rates, commodity prices and tax revenue. This file will be updated monthly.

Moreover for those researchers interested in analyzing time series data as far back as 1972 the Statistics Department has prepared a historical data set in Excel which includes the indicators in the Monthly Economic Trends Publication. This file will be updated yearly.

For detailed banking sector data please click on the following link which has all the Excel tables in the latest edition of the quarterly Scheduled Bank Statistics  publication. For a detailed analysis of some of this data you will also find attached our first Financial Stability report which presents summary statistics and analysis of the banking sector.

Data on the weighted average rate of interest on deposits and loans for each bank is now available. In addition to this summary data we also have detailed interest rate data by type of deposit and loan product. We will progressively bring out other data in easily downloadable format, and develop new user-friendly applications, as part of this “Bangladesh Bank Open data initiative” to promote greater use of data for more effective policymaking.

The Bank also compiles and publishes a range of economic data in html format.
