IMF Compliance Dataset - Using the IMF MONA Database I have coded all IMF loans from 2002-2015. I measure aggregate compliance with program lending. The dataset also sorts 33,000 conditions reviews into nine policy domains: labor market reform, free trade, privatization, social welfare, finance reform, land reform, transparency, fiscal austerity, and institutional reform. For each policy domain I code whether a policy was met, not met, met with delay, cancelled, or partially met. The type of loan, type of policy (pa, spc, sb), size of loan, whether it is precautionary, and whether it ended early are also coded. The dataset also accounts for IMF policy reforms made prior to the official start date of an arrangement significantly reducing measurement error associated with the timing of loans. Direct measures of compliance also allow for more direct tests of theories regarding IMF program design, compliance, and outcomes.
