New Africa revenue database

A new database of public revenues is now available in a joint project from the OECD, the African Development Bank (AfDB), the UN Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) and the UN Development programme (UNDP.) It is here.

It is astonishing that the data on African (and other developing countries') revenue sectors has been so poor, for so long - so it is extremely welcome to see this new source become available, which could become a valuable tool for researchers. The OECD links are still slightly jumbled, so we present the main tables here:

Table 1: Direct taxes - Current Billion USD, 1996-2008

Table 2: Direct taxes - Current Billion Local Currency, 1996-2008

Table 3: Indirect Taxes - Current Billion USD, 1996-2008

Table 4: Indirect Taxes - Current Billion Local Currency, 1996-2008

Table 5: Non Taxes - Current Billion USD, 1996-2008

Table 6: Non Taxes - Current Billion Local Currency, 1996-2008

Table 7: Other Taxes - Current Billion USD, 1996-2008

Table 8: Other Taxes - Current Billion Local Currency, 1996-2008

Table 9: Total Revenue (excluding grants) - Current Billion USD, 1996-2008

Table 10: Total Revenue (excluding grants) - Current Billion Local Currency, 1996-2008

Table 11: Trade Taxes - Current Billion USD, 1996-2008

Table 12: Trade Taxes - Current Billion Local Currency, 1996-2008

The next data update is due in March 2011. For excel sheets, click here.
