COFOG in SKOS
A pure SKOS rendition of the Classification of the Functions of Government vocabulary
COFOG, "Classification of the Functions of Government", is a United Nations Statistics Division-issued vocabulary used to "...distinguish between the individual and collective services provided by general government and identifies consumption expenditures that benefit individual households...". This representation of COFOG is as a pure Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS) vocabulary meaning that the content is presented witn only SKOS and simple annotation properties.
This SKOS-only version of COFOG was produced by editing a Registry Ontology version of SKOS presented at http://registry.it.csiro.au/def/agldwg/cofog. The reason for this re-presentation is to provide a simpler representation of COFOG for those familiar with SKOS but not the Registry Ontology.
