- Analytical Framework, Concepts, Definitions and Classifications
The rates are classified by duration period (short term or long term; one month or one year, etc.), transactions party (central bank or five leading banks; depositor or borrower), and the type of financial tools (commercial paper or government bond).
- Scope of the Data
Data on interest rates cover deposit and loan rates of five leading banks, short-term rates on money market securities, and long-term yields on government bonds.
- Accounting Conventions
The interest rates are recorded for each transaction day.
- Nature of Basic Data
The central bank rate is announced by the CBC. Deposit rates and loan rates are provided by the five leading domestic banks which post those rates on their banks' boards. The rates of short-term money market and yields on long-term government bonds are sourced from interbank money center, over the counter securities exchange, treasury department & banking department of CBC, and bills finance companies and banks.
- Compilation Practices
Deposit rates and loan rates are the average of the end-of-month data for the five leading domestic banks. The rates of short-term money market and yields on long-term government bonds are weighted daily average data.
