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

Under standard national accounting conventions, government consumption includes the outputs of nonmarket processes of production and excludes their inputs, these being accounted as intermediate usage by various industries, mainly public administration and defense (SNA 2008). Most I-O tables contributed to GTAP follow 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 defense (more precisely, for the GTAP commodity osg in which public administration and defense are included). This has been a major source of variation in I-O structure across regions in previous releases. This chapter explains the procedure used to improve government consumption representation in the non-compliant tables.
