IMF: missing metadata?
Reported on the forum
There’s an oddity with IMF Balance of Payments data. See for example IMF/BOP/A.FR.BACK_BP6_USD. The unit is just given as “US Dollars” but the values clearly are not plain dollars, and if you visit the IMF’s own Data Mapper you can find out that they are in millions. There’s nothing in the JSON from db.nomics that conveys that information.
