BOOST country page for Kiribati

The Kiribati BOOST database was constructed with data provided to the World Bank by the Kiribati Ministry of Finance (MoF). The BOOST dataset presents initial and actual amounts for the period between 2002 and 2014 for both revenue and expenditure. Covering more than ten years of data, the Kiribati BOOST dataset covers one of the longest periods of time of the initiative. In addition to being a founding member of the Open Budgets Portal, Kiribati is the first country to include revenue data in their database, becoming a pioneer in budget transparency. The Kiribati Government has worked in close coordination with the World Bank Country Team on the creation and analysis of the database. Along with Solomon Islands and Tonga, Kiribati was one of the first countries in the South Pacific region to become a member of the BOOST Initiative. The data presented in the database is dissected in three levels of economic classification, one level of functional classification, and two levels of administrative classification. The Econ0 variable can be used to distinguish between revenue and expendiute.The database only includes data for the central government. Database users should be aware of the potential limitations of the datasets. We urge users to consult the users’ manuals to learn more about these limitations and take them into account when analyzing their countries’ budgets.
