 Dear List Members

Following on from the query/suggesion from Peter Krantz:-

I have worked with the UN Statistics Division to produce a multilingual
SKOS/RDF version of the United Nations “Classification of Functions of
Government” [COFOG] [1]   The files are available as downloads from the UN
site [2]

COFOG has the advantage that at some level all countries report using this
classification, and it also is sufficiently broad to make classification
easier than with finer grained schemes.

Kind regards

Peter Winstanley
