2.54. To the extent that other countries compile balance of payments statistics by partner country on a basis largely consistent with that used by Australia, it is possible to compare partner countries' estimates of their transactions with Australia with Australia's estimates of its transactions with those countries. For example, a recent bilateral study between the ABS and the New Zealand Department of Statistics compared statistics of transactions between the two countries in the fields of services and international investment. This study has alerted both statistical agencies to possible causes of discrepancies in the statistics and has suggested areas for improvement which are being pursued.
