Provincial accounts; revenues and expenditures by province


This table contains figures on the expenditures and revenues per task (policy area) by province in millions of euros and in euros per inhabitant. The figures presented are based on data that is in line with the definitions and classifications used by the provinces themselves in their administration. The presented figures are based on data that adhere to the definitions and classifications that provinces 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 18 December 2019:
The provisional figures for 2018 have been added.
The figures for 2017 are definite.

Province of Utrecht
When the provisional data for the reporting year 2017 were published, the province of Utrecht did not yet have an qualified auditor's report on its financial statements. Halfway 2019 however an qualified auditors report was issued. As a result the 2017 data regarding the province of Utrecht may have been adjusted so that they are now in accordance with the approved 2017 financial statements.
For the 2018 reporting year the province of Utrecht does not yet have an qualified auditor's report on the financial statements. This means that the published data for 2018 have a provisional status. When the provincial data on reporting year 2019 will be published in December 2020, the 2018 data will be adjusted.

When will new figures be published?
The new figures from the provincial accounts are published no later than 12 months after the reporting period.
The figures can be adjusted on the basis of the availability of new or updated source material. In general, the adjustments are small. The adjustments are made the moment a new annual figure is 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. In the administration of provinces the classification of expenditures and revenues by task is sometimes revised, which could cause (small) shifts between tasks between the years 2017 and 2018.

More information on these changes can be found in paragraph 3 under 'relevant tables'.
