Retail payments, currency and related indicators
The BIS statistics on the supply and use of retail payments are part of the Red Book statistics of the 27 member jurisdictions of the Committee on Payments and Market Infrastructures (CPMI) and are published annually.
The statistics contain two distinct sections. The first section includes general macroeconomic statistics, which can be used to relate the size of a country's payment industry to the size of its economic activity. This section also includes figures on banknotes and coins in circulation and on the narrow money supply. The second section details institutions offering payment services to end users, supply of cards and terminals, use of cashless payments, cash withdrawals and deposits. The data set also presents qualitative information on card schemes.
The country tables present developments for individual CPMI jurisdictions over time. The comparative tables combine key data from the country tables from all CPMI jurisdictions. The comparative tables also contain qualitative information on credit and debit card schemes.
