Confidentiality of policy votes remains common practice

Proportion of central banks revealing voting information with a lag creeps up

Anonymity of monetary policy votes remains the norm across central banks, the Monetary Policy Benchmarks 2023 find.

Central Banking received responses from 33 institutions, 58% of which say they do not make individual policy-makers’ votes public. The number is down from the 79% vote-anonymity trends reported in the 2022 benchmarks.

A share of 21% says the principle is non-applicable in their jurisdictions, but 15% say they publish with a lag, a little higher than the 13% reported in 2022.
