In addition to Danmarks Nationalbank’s reserve assets, the extended compilation includes information on future inflows and outflows on assets and liabilities in foreign currency, including disbursements on the government’s liabilities in foreign currency, as well as supplementary information on, for example, assets in foreign currency received or pledged by Danmarks Nationalbank.

The statistics on international reserve assets are divided into holdings of different types of securities, gold, loans and deposits in foreign currency etc., while the statistics on payments and liquidity are divided into sector, loans and deposits in foreign currency, securities and type of payments etc.
