Government Budget 65% open

Costa Rica


What data is expected?

National government budget at a high level, that is the planned government expenditure for the upcoming year, and not the actual expenditure. Open budget data allows for well-informed publics: showing where money is spent on, how public funds develop over time, and why certain activities are funded. We recommend that you consult our methodology section for more information.

  • Budget per government department
  • Budget per sub-department
  • Descriptions for budget sections

How open is the data?

Comment reviewer: the first link in B2.2 (https://cgrweb.cgr.go.cr/apex/f?p=10263:2:0:::::) was not working and I have based my review on this link (http://www.hacienda.go.cr/contenido/13889-ley-de-presupuesto-de-la-republica-2017). The data is available in PDF, and xls, the xls provide a lot of detail. The problem is with the unavailability of bulk download. The data for 2017 was available, so I changed the question B6 from no to yes, and the question B8, I removed csv, because I could not find that in the provided links.
