Indonesia COFIS (Consolidated Fiscal) Database

The Indonesia Consolidated Fiscal dataset (COFIS) contains data on expenditure from the central and sub-national (provinces, districts) governments. The data comes from publicly available data sources, managed by the Government of Indonesia (GoI) and, unless indicated otherwise, is audited realized expenditure data.

The data is available by function, sector and economic classification for all levels of government, with consistent definitions across levels. “Functions” correspond to GoI classification, while “Sectors” correspond to World Bank’s areas of focus. Time series start at the beginning of decentralization, and include the most recent data. The data differs from original GoI data, as it has been retreated by the World Bank COFIS team (contact: COFIS@worldbank.org ) in order to:

  • make categories consistent across time
  • make categories consistent across levels of government
  • inflate consolidated sub-national figures to account for all sub-national governments expenditure - this is necessary since some sub-national governments fail to report their expenditure and cause missing values

Summarized and detailed manuals are available: we recommend that users refers to them to understand how the COFIS dataset is constructed and understand its limitations.

COFIS is not intended to meet all public financial analytical needs, and for instance does not contain expenditure data for individual sub-national governments, or expenditure data by line ministry / agency. Companions datasets (notably on expenditure by ministry / agency) and other resources are available (see links on the Indonesia resource page) to address those needs, in particular INDO-DAPOER (Indonesia Database for Policy and Economic Research) contains disaggregated fiscal data for all sub-national governments in Indonesia.

The COFIS database is a work in progress: it will be maintained to include new data as it becomes available and will evolve in scope, notably to include revenue data.
