The publication Revenue Statistics in Africa is jointly undertaken by the OECD Centre for Tax Policy and Administration and the OECD Development Centre, the African Union Commission (AUC) and the African Tax Administration Forum (ATAF) with funding by the European Union. It compiles comparable tax revenue and non-tax revenue statistics for 16 countries in Africa: Cabo Verde, Cameroon,  the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Kenya, Mauritius, Morocco, Niger, Rwanda, Senegal, South Africa, Swaziland, Togo, Tunisia and Uganda. The model is the OECD Revenue Statistics database which is a fundamental reference, backed by a well-established methodology, for OECD member countries. Extending the OECD methodology to African countries enables comparisons of tax-to-GDP ratios and tax structures on a consistent basis, both among African economies and with OECD, Latin American, Caribbean and Asian economies.

SPECIAL FEATURE – Domestic resource mobilisation in Africa: Progress made, and long-term challenges

A key rationale behind the Revenue Statistics in Africa project is the desire to meet the need for better and more comparable datasets on government revenues in African countries. The aim is to support an improved understanding of the progress that African countries are making in mobilising domestic resources for development. The generation of savings by a government internally, especially through taxation, instead of through external sources such as loans, grants, aid or remittances, provides a more stable source of revenue over time.
