findable_steps For GDP and Population, I just googled those keywords and "municipal". For Unemployment, I did a quick research to check if the Continuous National Household Sample Survey collects municipal data. After that I visited the IBGE website and searched for Population, GDP and Unemployment at the municipal level
licence_url http://www.ibge.gov.br/home/disseminacao/eventos/missao I didn't find something as objective as a "terms and conditions" or a real license, but I found at this link a list of fundamental principles for official statistics with some guidelines for publication and dissemination. It contains the idea of data provided for public domain.
Collected by government Yes
