Activity Standard Summary Table¶

Section Item Description Type Codelist XML Occur Rules
iati-activities   Top-level list of one or more IATI activity records.     iati-activities  
  version A number indicating the IATI specification version in use. This is mandatory and must be a valid version. xsd:string Version iati-activities/@version 1..1  
  generated-datetime A date/time stamp for when this file was generated. This is not necessarily the last-updated date for the individual activity records in it. Use of this attribute is highly recommended, to allow recipients to know when a file has been updated. xsd:dateTime   iati-activities/@generated-datetime 0..1  
  linked-data-default

If a publisher chooses to publish linked data about their IATI activities then allowing them to declare where this data is published would support discovery of it, and any additional information they may choose to publish as Linked Data alongside it.

This attribute is a URI path upon which an activity identifier can be appended to get a differentiable URI for any activity contained within a file.

Where a publisher declares using one of these properties that authoritative linked data is accessible for an activity then consuming applications that are generating Linked Data from an IATI XML file should assert an owl:sameAs relationship to the relevant URI.

xsd:anyURI   iati-activities/@linked-data-default 0..1  
iati-activity   Top-level element for a single IATI activity report.     iati-activities/iati-activity 1..*  
  last-updated-datetime The last date/time that the data for this specific activity was updated. This date must change whenever the value of any field changes. xsd:dateTime   iati-activities/iati-activity/@last-updated-datetime 0..1  
  xml:lang ISO 639-1 code specifying the default language used in narrative elements throughout the activity. If this is not declared then the xml:lang attribute MUST be specified for each narrative element.   Language iati-activities/iati-activity/@xml:lang 0..1  
  default-currency Default ISO 4217 alphabetic currency code for all financial values in this activity report. If this is not declared then the currency attribute MUST be specified for all monetary values. xsd:string Currency iati-activities/iati-activity/@default-currency 0..1  
  humanitarian A process flag to indicate that this activity relates entirely or partially to humanitarian aid. xsd:boolean   iati-activities/iati-activity/@humanitarian 0..1  
  hierarchy The hierarchical level within the reporting organisation’s subdivision of its units of aid. (eg activity = 1; sub-activity = 2; sub-sub-activity = 3). If hierarchy is not reported then 1 is assumed. If multiple levels are reported then, to avoid double counting, financial transactions should only be reported at the lowest hierarchical level. xsd:int   iati-activities/iati-activity/@hierarchy 0..1  
  linked-data-uri A Linked Data URI for a given activity (overrides iati-activities/@linked-data-default if set) xsd:anyURI   iati-activities/iati-activity/@linked-data-uri 0..1

  vocabulary

An IATI code for the vocabulary (see codelist) used for sector classifications. If omitted, OECD DAC 5-digit Purpose Codes are assumed.

It is recommended that OECD DAC 5-digit Purpose Codes are used wherever possible. It is also recommended that if a publisher has its own classification system or systems then the vocabularies 99 or 98 (Reporting Organisation’s own vocabularies) should be used in addition to DAC codes.

Publishers using 98 or 99 must also include a narrative in the narrative element.

Note that if multiple sector codes are used in multiple vocabularies, then each vocabulary’s percentages should add up to 100%.

Sector can also be reported at the transaction level rather than the activity level. Sector must only be reported at EITHER transaction level OR activity level.

International Aid Transparency Initiative: Activity-Information Schema

Release 2.02, 2015-12-07

NOTE: the xml.xsd and iati-common.xsd schemas must be in the
same directory as this one.

This W3C XML Schema defines an XML document type for information
about one or more aid-related activities, following the standard
published at http://iatistandard.org/

This document type may be extended with additional elements and
attributes, but they must belong to an explicit XML namespace.
