For countries with an asterisk (*), a fiscal Report on the Observance of Standards and Codes (ROSC) has been published by the IMF.

Table 1 includes all countries that are considered rich in hydrocarbons and/or mineral resources on the basis of the following criteria: (i) an average share of hydrocarbon and/or mineral fiscal revenues in total fiscal revenue of at least 25 percent during the period 2000-05 or (ii) an average share of hydrocarbon and/or mineral export proceeds in total export proceeds of at least 25 percent.

Revenues including grants.

World Bank World Development Indicators definition. Energy depletion is equal to the product of unit resource rents and the physical quantities of energy extracted. It covers coal, crude oil, and natural gas.

For countries with an asterisk (*), a fiscal Report on the Observance of Standards and Codes (ROSC) has been published by the IMF.

Table 2 includes countries that are considered rich in hydrocarbons and/or mineral resources on the basis of the following criteria: (1) an average share of hydrocarbon and/or mineral fiscal revenues in total fiscal revenue of at least 25 percent during the period 2000–05 or (2) an average share of hydrocarbon and/or mineral export proceeds in total export proceeds of at least 25 percent during the period 2000-05. Two countries (Indonesia and Jordan) do not meet the data criteria to be in the list but are included owing to the relevant importance of minerals in their economies. Indonesia, Mauritania, and Uzbekistan have substantial hydrocarbon resources.

Revenues including grants.

World Bank World Development Indicators definition. Mineral depletion is equal to the product of unit resource rents and the physical quantities of minerals extracted. It refers to tin, gold, lead, zinc, iron, copper, nickel, silver, bauxite, and phosphate.
