According to Statistics Finland's preliminary data, the general government deficit and debt figures were revised a little compared to data released in early March. The revision was based on up-to-date data on state revenues from taxes, income transfers between the state and municipalities, and debt accumulated in 2013, due to which the deficit increased by EUR 195 million and the debt grew by EUR 35 million. The figures derive from the data reported by Statistics Finland to Eurostat.

Description: These statistics contain data on the deficit and debt of government finance in Finland. Twice yearly the Member States of the European Union report data on their so-called EDP deficits and debts to the EU Commission. The data are used in the context of the EU’s Stability and Growth Pact to assess the state of government finances in the Member States. The reporting is a constituent part of what is known as the Excessive Deficit Procedure (EDP). The reported data are produced in compliance with the European System of Accounts (ESA 1995) and a separate EU Regulation. The data reported by the different Member States are comparable with each other.
