"GTAP 7 Data Base Documentation - Chapter 8.E: Government Consumption"
by McDougall, Robert, Vitaly Vladimirovich Kharitonov and Angel Aguiar

Under standard national accounting conventions (U.N. 1993), government consumption includes the outputs of “non-market processes of production” and excludes their inputs, these being accounted as intermediate usage by various industries, notably, public administration and defence. Most I-O tables contributed to GTAP apply this convention, but some do not. The non-compliant tables differ from the compliant in presenting much lower totals for government consumption expenditure, and, within those totals, much lower expenditure shares for public administration and defence (more precisely, for the GTAP commodity osg in which public administration and defence are included). This has been a major source of variation in I-O structure across regions in past releases.
