Table description


This table contains information on expenditure and consumption broken down into functions 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). The Classification of the Functions of Government (COFOG 1999) is used for the classification of the functions. The second level function determines whether consumption of government is collective or individual. 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.

Status of the figures:
The figures for the period 1995-2019 are definite. The figures for 2020 are provisional.

Changes as of 18 March 2022:
The expenditure of the State on social benefits (D.62) for reporting year 2019 has been corrected. The amounts allocated to function groups of the division education (COFOG division 9) were wrongly classified due to a compilation error. The total amount of social benefits of the State allocated to the function education in 2019 has not been revised.

Changes as of 26 November 2021:
The provisional figures for 2020 have been added.
The figures for 2019 are definite.

When will new figures be published?
New figures will be published in the second half of the year. Provisional figures will become final and final figures can be revised at the same time. More information on the revision policy of National Accounts can be found under 'relevant articles' under paragraph 3.

Description topics

Government expenditure and consumption
Government expenditure and final consumption expenditure.

Government expenditure consists of intermediate consumption, compensation of employees, interest, social benefits, social transfers in kind via market producers, paid subsidies, other current expenditure and capital expenditure.

Government final consumption expenditure is equal to the the total of their output plus the expenditure on products supplied to households via market producers minus the sales of goods and services. The output of government is equal to the sum of its costs of production: Compensation of employees, intermediate consumption, consumption of fixed capital, and taxes on production paid net of subsidies on production received.
