  21. Some tips on using the databanks Tip 1:choose your data from the same databank or family of databanks • comparability issues between data from different databanks, even for series with well-established standards • theoretically identical series can have different values in different databanks

  22. Tip 2:some of the databanks have better cross country comparability than others. • OECD databanks are specifically designed for country comparisons • IMF International Financial Statistics is not. Tip 3:Use the Discover catalogue and UKDS.Stat to locate the data you need and get further information and documentation about the dataset Tip 4: Examine more info and footnotes
