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.

In this publication there are differences between the national accounts and government finance statistics in 2021. The national accounts will be aligned with government finance statistics on 24 June 2024.

Data available from:
