Data on government sector receipts, and on taxes in particular, are basic inputs to most structural economic descriptions and economic analyses and are increasingly used in international comparisons. This annual database presents a unique set of detailed and internationally comparable data on both tax and non-tax revenue in a common format for African countries participating in Revenue Statistics in Africa.

Data from 2007 onwards are classified under the OECD classification. Mauritius went back to a July-June fiscal year in 2015 and figures are not available for all revenue categories for the 2015 calendar year. Where data were missing among budgetary central government revenues, quarterly revenue figures at the aggregate level were used along with fiscal year revenue data to produce estimates for the calendar year 2015. For 2015 revenues aside from central government revenues, linear interpolation was used in some cases to estimate revenues. These cases are flagged with footnotes.

The GDP for Kenya and Uganda in all years and for Mauritius in the years preceding 2010 are adjusted using the formula GDP(n)/2+GDP(n-1)/2. This is done in order to make the value of the GDP correspond more closely to a July(n-1)-to-June(n) fiscal year. The GDP for Mauritius is not adjusted from 2010 to 2015 because public finance data is reported on a calendar year for those years.

Revenue Statistics in Africa, a collaboration of the AU, ATAF and the OECD, presents a unique set of detailed and internationally comparable tax and non-tax revenue data in a common format. The classifications and definitions used for this data are consistent with those used in Revenue Statistics, in Revenue Statistics in Latin America and the Caribbean, and Revenue Statistics in Asian Countries. It also provides a conceptual framework defining which government receipts should be regarded as taxes and classifies different types of revenues. Comparable tables show revenue data by type in US dollars, as a percentage of GDP, and, for the different types of revenues, as a share of total taxation and total non-tax revenues. Detailed country tables show information in national currency values.

Unless otherwise noted, all revenue data are on a cash basis.
Base period
Data are on a fiscal year basis beginning 1st July for years prior to 2010 (for example the data for 2009 represent July 2008 to June 2009) and are on a calendar year basis from 2010 onwards.
