LGPC / COFOG Linkset

This code repository contains a Linkset - a specialised Dataset linking objects in two other Datasets.

This Linkset contains SKOS mapping properties between Concepts in the AGIFT and Concepts in the COFOG vocabularies.

LGPC, "Local Government Purpose Classification" is an Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) a vocabulary of classifiers for use in the collection, analysis and dissemination of local government finance statistics in Australia.

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 Linkset uses only SKOS Mapping Properties to map between AGIFT & COFOG-A. Only the following properties are used:

  • skos:exactMatch
  • skos:broadMatch
  • skos:narrowMatch
