Summary data from EITI Reports
Thank you for your interest in EITI data. Please read our description and below.
EITI data are available via three platforms. You can download all the files from our google drive hosting the data, or download specific data through our API: api.eiti.org or https://eiti.org/api/. Lastly, you can also use the select tool on our data-page to compare key figures and related excel files of specific countries and years.
Summary data is EITI’s tool for collecting and publishing data from EITI Reports in structured way.
The summary data files are excel files, which are filled out by our implementing countries using the Summary Data Template. Countries submit one excel-file for every fiscal year covered by an EITI Report.
The files combine international standards for classification to compile the following information:
The first worksheet, 1. About, covers the basic characteristics of the report, such as the scope of the report and location of additional sources (these are usually links to websites). It also gives information on who assembled the data.
The 2. Disclosure checklist sheet addresses availability of contextual information, such as contracts, licenses, legal and fiscal framework (usually weblinks) as well as providing the sources of information. It also provides a summary of the sector-specific figures (contribution to the economy, total revenues, etc). It follows the structure of the EITI Standard, requirement by requirement.
3. Reporting entities lists reporting entities (Government agencies, companies and projects) and related information, such as companies’ legal name, identification numbers (such as Tax Identification Numbers), what sector they operate in, and which commodities they are associated with.
4. Government revenues contains full government disclosure of revenues per revenue stream, according to GFS classification. It includes government revenues from extractives in its entirety, i.e all revenue streams for the extractive sectors, including revenues that fall below agreed materiality thresholds. Each revenue stream has a correspondent sector it applies to and GFS code from the IMF’s Government Finance Statistics (GFS) Manual 2014 framework. GFS is an international standard for classifying government revenues, making them comparable across different countries and time-periods.
5. Company Data contains company- and project-level data per revenue stream, cash or in-kind. It includes the final reconciled numbers from the EITI Reports, as declared by government. It combines two levels of detail (or disaggregation), through presenting both by-revenue-stream and by-company numbers. This provides detailed information of government receipts from various companies operating in the countries.
What is in the Google drive folders
We are adding more data to the public domain on a continuous basis. For a full overview of EITI open data coverage, see this file.
The data files are organised on a google drive and saved in folders by country. Here is what you will find:
- Excel files containing summary data for a specific year. Any EITI Report that form the basis for summary data
- The EITI Report that is the basis of the Summary Data
Sources of the data: Recent data has been provided by Independent Administrators and National Secretariats of the EITI, while data from older reports have been compiled by the International Secretariat itself. The author of the data sheet is referenced in the "About" section of the excel file.
Implementing countries are responsible for ensuring that this data is accurate.
The national secretariats submit the files to the International Secretariat. We make every effort to verify the data with reference to the EITI Report, and to correct any errors we encounter. For detailed information, please consult the original reports. Where figures are not available in US dollars, the annual average exchange rate is used.
The data is shared freely and publicly as per the EITI's Open Data Policy.
