Technical Note
Government Revenue Dataset (2021): country notes

This technical note is the third in a series based on the UNU-WIDER Government Revenue Dataset (GRD). The preceding notes have described in detail the variables contained within the GRD and the source selection procedures.

In this technical note, we present the in-depth country-specific notes that accompany the GRD. Whilst these have always been embedded in the GRD’s Excel and Stata files, they are now contained herein, organized country by country in a more user-friendly format.

The notes presented here correspond to the ‘merged’ version of the GRD (i.e. taking the best available data from Central or General Government). For users using only the General or Central versions of the dataset, we encourage that they consult the notes within the data files themselves.
