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.
