COVID-19 Fiscal Governance & Anti-Corruption Database

We are now happy to make the Global Integrity COVID-19, Fiscal Governance & Anti-Corruption Database open to all. It’s a resource that we hope will be as useful to others as it has been to us.

The database is organized in 14 columns that include tags to enable searching. Here are definitions and frequencies for each tag. Below are descriptions of the 14 columns and the information they contain:

The first seven columns provide general information for each resource including the title, a short summary, the link, the producer, the publishing date, the type of resource (e.g. webinar, blog, article, etc), and whether or not the piece is part of a recurring series.

The following three columns (level, region, and country) provide information about the geographical focus of the resource, and
