One key attribute of the foreign assistance data is the sector assignment, which provides an understanding of the purpose of the activity. For example, Agriculture, Basic Education, and Civil Society are three of the 52 sectors possible. These sectors are organized under nine broader foreign assistance categories. All funds are sorted into only one sector and one category, so there is no double-counting of funds. The framework of sector classifications includes an established structure with precise definitions that enables the aggregation, comparison, and analysis of data.
