Statistics and Databases

Information from a variety tax issues relevant to the analysis of Latin American economies.



CEPALSTAT is the gateway to all the statistical information of Latin America and the Caribbean countries collected, systematized and published by ECLAC.

The availability of timely statistical information is essential for socio-economic and environmental analysis and for various decision-making processes. ECLAC has been contributing in the dissemination of relevant data in the economic, social and environmental fields for Latin America and the Caribbean through various means. While most of the information disseminated is produced by official agencies of countries and international agencies, its systematization and documentation constitutes a contribution for users of regional data.



The Inter-American Center of Tax Administrations (CIAT), aware of the need of the tax administrations of member countries and associate-member countries to access information in standard formats that facilitate analysis and allow easy comparison, presents the new CIATData service.

In CIATData you will find basic information about CIAT member countries and associate-member countries, such as a brief description of their tax system, the features of their tax administration and the recent evolution of their tax revenue. Likewise, the service enables querying Information Exchange Agreements and/or Double Taxation Agreements subscribed, historical comparisons of the rates from their main taxes and different tax indicators.

In the first phase, CIATData shall deliver more information for the Latin American area, but shall soon complete the information for all CIAT member and associate-member countries, to become one of the most complete free databases on the subject.

Additionally, we have been working to expeditiously update information on tax legislation. To such end, we rely on the usual invaluable support of all our member and associate-member countries.
