The IFS Yearbook, usually published in September, contains available annual data covering 12 years for countries appearing in the monthly issues of ""International Financial Statistics"" (IFS). Additional time series in country tables and some additional tables of area and world aggregates are included in the Yearbook. ""The IFS Country Notes"" presents, in two sections, brief information on the IFS data. ""Country Notes"" is designed to be a companion volume to each version of IFS: the monthly print edition, the Yearbook, the CD-ROM, and the online service. The complete set of updated ""Country Notes"" is accessible from the IFS Online service Internet site, and appears on the CD-ROM edition of ""IFS"". These notes are updated on a monthly basis.
