Other local Government; quarterly revenue and expenditure


This table contains administrative data on a quarterly basis about revenue and expenditure of the other local government. These figures differ from the National Accounts composed in accordance with ESA standards. No corrections are made for potential errors in the source data. With this table, the Netherlands meets the requirements as laid down in the Directive EU 2011/85. This directive is part of the Enhanced Economic Governance package ('Sixpack'), adopted by the European Council in 2011.

Statistics Netherlands published the revised National Accounts in June 2018. Among other things, GDP and total government expenditures have been adjusted upwards as a result of the revision. As part of the revision, the determination of the population of local non-profit institutions has been improved qualitatively. The observed population has grown in size. From the first quarter of 2018 onwards, administrative data of the other local government will be published after revision in this table. The figures for the previous quarters have not been adjusted based on the revision. Between the fourth quarter of 2017 and the first quarter of 2018, a break occurs as a result of the changed observed population of local non-profit institutions.

Data available from: first quarter 2014.

Status of the figures:
The figures for the year 2019 are provisional, the figures for the period 2014-2018 are definite.

Changes as from 31 March 2020:
Figures for the fourth quarter of 2019 have been added.
Due to new information, the figures for the first three quarters of 2019 have been changed.

When will new figures be published?
New quarterly figures are published three months after the quarter under review. When figures for a new quarter are published, the provisional figures of the previous quarter may be adjusted. After publication of annual figures, the status of the figures becomes definite. In case of a revision of the National Accounts, all reporting years prior to the most current first quarter are given a definitive status.
