Analyzing Government Revenue Worldwide

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has made its World Revenue Longitudinal Dataset (WoRLD) publicly available for the first time. This database shows government revenue for 186 countries from 1990 to 2013. IMF has used a version of WoRLD internally for years, and it decided to open it to the public to encourage more analysis. IMF will update WoRLD annually and incorporate data from staff reports as they produce them.
