Global Database of Tax and Government Revenues
International development researchers often have a difficult time comparing different countries’ finances due to poor quality data in many parts of the world. To help address the problem, the nonprofit International Centre for Tax and Development has compiled a cross-country data set on taxes and government revenue. The Government Revenue Dataset’s creators hope researchers will be able to use the data, which combines information from several major international databases as well as International Monetary Fund information, to investigate the role of revenue and taxation on development.
