This is the reference page for the XML element sector. See also the relevant overview page: Classifications

Definition

Sector code and name. For the value of the @code attribute, see http://iatistandard.org/codelists/sector

Either the @code attribute or descriptive text content must be present.

Attributes

@code

The code for the sector. If the vocabulary is “DAC” or missing then the CRS Sector Code should be used.

Code is not mandatory but highly recommended. Either code or description must be present.

This value must be of type xsd:string.

This value must be on the Sector codelist.

@vocabulary

The vocabulary (codelist) used for sector classifications. If omitted, assume DAC. “DAC” codes should be used wherever possible. It is also recommended that if a publisher has its own classification system then the vocabulary “RO” (Reporting Organisation’s own vocabulary” should be used in addition to “DAC”. NB that if multiple sector codes are used in multiple vocabularies then each vocabulary’s percentages should add up to 100%.

See http://iatistandard.org/codelists/vocabulary

This value must be of type xsd:string.

This value must be on the Vocabulary codelist.

@percentage

The percentage of the budget allocated to this item. Content must be a positive decimal number between 0 and 100, with no percentage sign. In version 1.03 of the IATI Standard this value became designated as a decimal value and no longer as a positive integer.

This value must be of type xsd:decimal.

@xml:lang

ISO 2 letter code specifying the language of text in this element.

This value must be on the Language codelist.

Example Usage

Example sector with the Sector code:

  <sector code="111" vocabulary="DAC" />

When multiple sector are declared, then the percentage values should sum to 100% for the specific iati-activity:

  <sector code="222" percentage="50" vocabulary="DAC" />
  <sector code="111" percentage="50" vocabulary="DAC" />

The vocabulary is used to declare which sector classification list is in use. If this is omitted, then IATI assumes the DAC.

If a vocabulary is not on the Vocabulary codelist, then the value of RO (Reporting Organisation) should be declared. Exceptionally, the text/name for the code should also be include.

<sector vocabulary="RO">Education</sector>

Changelog

1.03

Where used, the @percentage attribute is now designated as a decimal value and no longer as a positive Integer
