This paper examines the usefulness of testing the conformity of macroeconomic data with Benford's law as indicator of data quality. Most of the macroeconomic data series tested conform with Benford's law. However, questions emerge on the reliability of such tests as indicators of data quality once conformity with Benford's law is contrasted with the data quality ratings included in the data module of the Reports on the Observance of Standards and Codes (data ROSCs). Furthermore, the analysis shows that rejection of Benford's law may be unrelated to the quality of statistics, and instead may result from marked structural shifts in the data series. Hence, nonconformity with Benford's law should not be interpreted as a reliable indication of poor quality in macroeconomic data.

financial data provided by the Ministry of Finance (MoF), and d) data from international organizations However, much remains to be done to improve the quality, coverage, and timelines of the balance of payments statistics. Data on foreign direct investment and portfolio flows remains weak. Project aid is currently classified as current transfers rather than in the capital account, and several large in-kind projects are not captured in the balance of payments data properly. To this end, the NSO is a recipient of substantial amounts of technical assistance from the
