Table description


This table contains information on the expenditure of the general government sector. The terms and definitions used are in accordance with the framework of National Accounts. National Accounts are based on the international definitions of the European System of Accounts (ESA 2010). Small temporary differences with publications of National Accounts may occur due to the fact that government finance statistics are sometimes more up to date.

Data available from:
Yearly figures from 1995, quarterly figures from 1999.

Status of the figures:
The figures for the period 1995-2019 are final. The quarterly figures for 2020 are provisional. The annual figures for 2020 are final. The figures for 2021 and 2022 are provisional.

Changes as of 24 June 2022:
Figures on the first quarter of 2022 are available. The quarterly figures for 2019, 2020 and 2021 and the annual figures 2020 and 2021 have been adjusted.
Annual figures from 1995 and quarterly figures from 1999 on investments grants, current taxes on income and wealth and other capital transfers of Energie Beheer Nederland B.V. (EBN), classified as part of the State, and other capital transfers of the State to the Dutch entrepreneurial development bank (FMO), part of sector financial corporations, have been revised. The figures are in line with the publications of the National accounts.
The quarterly figures for 2019 and the annual figures for 2020 are final.

When will new figures be published?
Initial quarterly figures are published three months after the end of the quarter. In September the figures on the first quarter are revised, in December the figures on the second quarter are revised and in March the first three quarters are revised. Yearly figures are published for the first time three months after the end of the year concerned. Yearly figures are revised two times: 6 and 18 months after the end of the year. Please note that there is a possibility that adjustments might take place at the end of March or September, in order to provide the European Commission with the most actual figures. Revised yearly figures are published in June each year. Quarterly figures are aligned to the three revised years at the end of June. More information on the revision policy of National Accounts can be found under 'relevant articles' under paragraph 3.
