Official statistics

Statistics on International Development (SID) focuses on the main international measure of official aid spend, known as Official Development Assistance (ODA). SID is published twice each year: provisional aid spend is published in the spring and final aid spend in the autumn.

The provisional SID publication is based on summary data with limited sector and geography breakdown. The final SID publication is based on finalised data and provides detailed breakdowns including a project-level dataset.

SID publications are designated as National Statistics publications.

Results estimates

We collect results data across our programmes to monitor our performance and is considering our overall approach to results as part of the Comprehensive Spending Review.

We will publish final results estimates for the reporting period 2015 to 2020 (under the Department for International Development) in 2021. These results monitor delivery of DFID’s Single Departmental Plan over the spending review period 2015 to 2020.

International Climate Finance Results were previously published jointly by DFID, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).

These results estimates are not official statistics but voluntarily comply with the Code of Practice for Statistics.
