Index Results by Type of Information

The Revenue Watch Index shows that about three-quarters (29 out of 41) of the countries provide scant or partial information about their extractive sector. This means that citizens are missing essential information to know how much their governments are profiting from the exploitation of state-owned natural resources. This table shows countries’ rankings and a breakdown by type of information.
