Modernised economic and financial statistics

Over the past few years, the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA), the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) and the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) have worked to modernise Australia’s financial sector data.

The Economic and Financial Statistics (EFS) collection – previously informally known as the Domestic Books collection – will be administered on behalf of the ABS and the RBA by APRA in its role as national statistical agency for the financial sector. It consists of data collected from authorised-deposit-taking institutions (including banks, building societies and credit unions) and registered financial corporations. The data collected will be used to compile key macroeconomic indicators for Australia, for analysis and policy purposes by economic policy makers, and to meet Australia’s international reporting obligations. This has been a large scale and complex project, involving considerable collaboration between the three agencies and the industry.

The new collection will be implemented in a phased approach, with the first phase commencing in March 2019. APRA, the ABS and the RBA will be publishing data from the new collection during 2019. More information on changes to individual agencies’ publications will be published on the relevant agency’s website.

For more information read the EFS frequently asked questions.

Open consultation on proposed ARS 722.0 ABS/RBA Derivatives Data Collection

APRA requests feedback from interested stakeholders on a draft Reporting Standard ARS 722.0 ABS/RBA Derivatives. The proposed draft standard will be used to collect quarterly data on authorised deposit-taking institutions and registered financial corporations derivatives activity.

Written submissions are requested by 18 June 2019. See information relating to this consultation under, March 2019:
