What is the definition of Unallocated Reserves in the Currency Composition of Official Foreign Exchange Reserves (COFER)?

Unallocated Reserves is the difference between the total foreign exchange reserves in the International Financial Statistics (IFS) world table on Foreign Exchange and the total allocated reserves in COFER. It includes foreign exchange reserves of those countries/territories that currently do not report to COFER but whose total foreign exchange reserves are included in the IFS world table.
