Reliable data on government expenditure in priority sectors, such as health and education, is a key ingredient into the analysis of public policy effectiveness. This brief note has two primary goals: (i) to document the increasing divergence over time between various official Tanzanian data sources on spending in these two sectors, and (ii) to outline possible explanations for this divergence and highlight its consequences for social expenditure analysis.
