Payment, clearing and settlement statistics

The BIS publishes statistics - known as Red Book statistics - on payment, clearing and settlement systems in member jurisdictions of the Committee on Payments and Market Infrastructures (CPMI). Red Book statistics complement the descriptions of payment, clearing and settlement systems in CPMI jurisdictions (descriptive Red Books).

In August 2017, the CPMI published a revised methodology of the Red Book statistics. December 2017 Red Book statistics (figures for 2016) still follow the old methodology.

The Red Book statistics are updated yearly. They include:

  • indicators of retail payment instruments and payment systems 
  • data on central counterparties and securities settlement systems

All data are national data collected by the central banks participating in the exercise.
