BOOST OPEN BUDGET PORTAL

CROSS-COUNTRY ANALYSIS TOOL

  • Introduction

    The Cross-Country Analysis visualization provides access to more than 250 comparative fiscal indicators across countries through time (2009 onwards). These indicators allow the user to benchmark the fiscal performance of different countries in terms of percentage of GDP, the participation of the overall spending, and per capita spending (in PPP terms).

     

    To use the interface, the user can select between different variables, such as year, budget type, indicator, budget parameter, country, region, and income level. The year and country variables, as its name implies, allows the user to choose between different years (2009 onwards) and countries. The budget type variable presents more than 40 categories of spending, mainly from a range of economic and functional classifications. The variable indicator displays the amounts on the visualization either as percentage of GDPpercentage of total spending or per capita spending (in PPP terms). The variable budget parameter allows the user to choose between two categories of the budget cycle: approved and executed, and two types of budget deviation: budget deviation (the simple difference between executed and approved amounts) and percentage of budget deviation (the difference between executed and approved amounts as percentage of the approved amounts). The region and incomevariables present the option of choosing between different regions of the world and income levels, following the World Bank country and income level classifications.

  • In 2015, the World Bank, in collaboration with the International Budget Partnership, carried out an online survey aimed at enhancing awareness and understanding of the main current uses of budget information by relevant stakeholders around the developing world, as well as the perceived existing barriers (in terms of data coverage and accessibility, technical capacities, etc.) to their deeper engagement in budget processes. A subset of the information collected through the survey from a variety of users active in the field of research, advocacy and other important fiscal thematic areas is presented in this section as a means to exemplify the growing role that civil society is gaining in the fiscal realm worldwide and to serve as motivation for additional groups working on budget issues to provide valuable feedback on their roles and activities to organically expand the wealth of information about civil society’s pivotal role in enhancing the quality of budget processes worldwide. To view examples of work carried out around the world, simply select your country of interest from the interactive map below.
