Global Revenue Statistics Data Set

This data set combines the different regional publications of Revenue Statistics:

  • Revenue Statistics 2020
  • OECD/ATAF/AUC (2020), Revenue Statistics in Africa 2020
  • OECD et al (2020), Revenue Statistics in Latin America and the Caribbean 2020 (LAC)
  • Revenue Statistics in Asian and Pacific Economies 2020
Revenue Statistics

The annual statistical publications present a unique set of detailed and internationally comparable tax revenue data in a common format. Its approach is based on the well-established methodology of the OECD Revenue Statistics (OECD, 2020), which has become an essential reference. It provides a conceptual framework defining which government receipts should be regarded as taxes and classifies different types of taxes. Comparable tables show revenue data by type of tax in national currency, as a percentage of GDP, and, for the different types of taxes, as a share of total taxation. Comparisons are also made with the averages of the 37 OECD economies, of the 25 LAC countries three of which are OECD members countries° and of 30 African countries.

The data set does not replace the other publications, and users are advised to consult the regional data sets for country specific information.
