This paper presents a new dataset of capital control restrictions on both inflows and outflows
of 10 categories of assets for 100 countries over the period 1995 to 2013. Building on the data
in Schindler (2009) and other datasets based on the analysis of the IMF’s Annual Report on
Exchange Arrangements and Exchange Restrictions (AREAER), this dataset includes
additional asset categories, more countries, and a longer time period. The paper discusses in
detail the construction of the dataset and characterizes the data with respect to the prevalence
and correlation of controls across asset categories and between controls on inflows and
controls on outflows, the aggregation of the separate categories into broader indicators, and
the comparison of this dataset with other indicators of capital controls.
