Aid Statistics

DFID is responsible for collecting, compiling, reporting and disseminating statistics on the deployment of official and private UK financial resources to support developing countries.

DFID produces two National Statistics publications: National Statistics logo

  • Statistics on International Development
  • Provisional UK ODA as a proportion of GNI

The following links contain more information on these publications and also on how we are complying with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics.

Statistics on International Development (SID)

Our annual publication Statistics on International Development (SID) provides information on the UK’s Gross Public Expenditure on Development (GPEX) which includes both the DFID aid programme and official aid that is provided through other UK government departments. The final figures for UK Official Development Assistance (ODA) are also reported in SID.

Official Development Assistance (ODA)

Provisional UK ODA is reported earlier in the year, usually in the March/April before the publication of SID.
