Social Expenditure Database Manual: A guide to the Social Expenditure Monitor Database in Tunisia
The Social Expenditure Monitor Database manual is a reference to understand better the building of indicators of social expenditure for Tunisia. The definition of indicators is based on ESCWA’s Social Expenditure Monitor for Arab States (ESCWA, 2019), tailored to Tunisia’s context. The methodology (codes) used to generate the indicators in Tunisia’s context is derived from the Tunisian Budget Law, from different line ministries/ governmental entities.
The manual starts with a discussion of the budget classification and data issues regarding the spending items as in the Tunisia Budget Laws. It aims to provide guidance for users to construct the indicators of the SEM based on programs/subprograms/special funds and their respective codes in Tunisia.
