Revenue Statistics in Africa

image of Revenue Statistics in Africa

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). It compiles comparable tax revenue and non-tax revenue statistics for eight countries in Africa: Cameroon, Côte d'Ivoire, Mauritius, Morocco, Rwanda, Senegal, South Africa and Tunisia. 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 about tax levels and tax structures on a consistent basis, both among African economies and with OECD, Latin  American, Caribbean and Asian economies.

Revenue Statistics in Africa is a significant step towards enhancing the comparability, quality and accessibility of public revenue data on the continent. Co-operation and transparency guided the compilation of this first edition. African and international organisations, working in partnership, invited African governments to share their statistics and collaborated closely with officials from tax administrations and statistics offices. A time-tested methodology and process reclassified the figures, leading to a new set of detailed, country-specific data for wide public dissemination.
