Table description


This table contains figures on the budgeted expenditures and income per task (policy area) according to region and size class in millions of euros and in euros per inhabitant. The presented figures are based on data that adhere to the definitions and classifications that municipalities themselves use in their administration. These data are supplied to Statistics Netherlands through the questionnaire called Information for Third Parties (Iv3). The directives for this questionnaire have been laid down in the Directive for Budgeting and Accounting for provinces and municipalities (BBV).

Data available from: 2017

Status of the figures:
The figures in this table are provisional at the time of first publication. Upon the second publication one year later, the figures will become definitive.

Changes as of 23 March 2022:
The provisional figures for 2022 have been added.
The figures for 2021 have become definitive.

When will new figures be published?
The new figures will be made available in the month of March of the financial year.
The figures are subject to revision based on the availability of new or updated sources. In general these adjustments are limited in size and scope. The adjustments will be implemented when new annual figures are added to the series.
Because of changes in the source material, Information for Third Parties (Iv3), the data are no longer completely comparable with data from earlier years as of the publication of the figures of the 2017 budgets. More information on these changes can be found in paragraph 3 under 'relevant tables'.
