Revision Policies

Balance of Payments (BOP) and International Investment Position (IIP)
Data on all BOP/IIP components released to the public during the reference quarter are treated as preliminary, and may be revised in any quarter of the reference year. Prior year's data may be revised coinciding with the release of the second quarter report in September of the current year and the fourth quarter report in March of the succeeding year. Historical revisions are carried out in case of significant changes arising from the introduction of new classifications, compilation frameworks and methodologies.

Depository Corporations Survey
Data on all components of the DCS released to the public during the reference period, i.e., one month after the reference month, are treated as preliminary. Data may be revised two months after the reference month to reflect updates on reports submitted by all universal/commercial and thrift banks, and six months after the reference month to cover updates on reports of rural banks, NBQBs, NSSLAs and MMF-UITF of trust entities. Data may be revised for the two previous years to reflect updates on the Central Bank Survey, generally within nine (9) months from end of the latest available full year. Data for longer periods may be revised due to significant changes, e.g., introduction of new concepts, classifications, and methodologies in compilation frameworks.

Loans Outstanding of Universal and Commercial Banks
The Loans Outstanding of Universal and Commercial Banks data are preliminary when first released. These will be revised one month and one week from reference month to reflect updates on reports submitted by all universal and commercial banks.

Philippine Flow of Funds (PFOF)
The Philippine Flow of Funds (PFOF) statistics are compiled and disseminated annually. Data are treated as preliminary when first released, and may be revised coinciding with the publication of the next annual PFOF report to incorporate restated data and other updates. Historical revisions are carried out in cases of significant changes arising from updates in the compilation frameworks and methodologies as well as availability of new data.

Central Bank Survey (CBS)
Data on all components of the CBS released to the public during the reference period i.e., 14 days after the reference period, are treated as preliminary, and may be revised in any month of the reference year. Data may be revised for the two previous years to reflect the latest updated, audited, and restated figures of BSPís financial statements and reports from other data sources, which are available generally within nine (9) months from end of the latest available full year. Data for longer periods may be revised due to significant changes, e.g., introduction of new concepts, classifications, and methodologies in compilation frameworks.
