Tax Revenue Dataset for Sub-Saharan Africa: 1980-2010

The main innovation of this tax revenue dataset for Sub-Saharan Africa is the level of detail it provides about tax revenue sources for a large number of countries (41) and over a long time period (1980-2010).

The paper written by Mario Mansour describes how the dataset was constructed, and how it identifies the way problem areas in tax revenue statistics in Sub-Saharan Africa and possible improvements. A graphical analysis highlights revenue performance over time and across three dimensions: income levels, the relative importance of tax revenue from extractive industries, and trading groups (free-trade areas and customs unions).
