General government revenue grew more than expenditure in the 3rd quarter of 2007

General government revenue grew by 4.6 per cent in the third quarter of 2007 when comparing seasonally unadjusted data with corresponding data from the year before. The revenue items that grew most were income tax, social contributions and property income. The revenue from taxes on production and imports decreased. General government expenditure grew by 3.7 per cent. The expenditure items that grew the most were intermediate consumption, social benefits in cash and compensation of employees. The general government is comprised of central government, local government and social security funds. The data derive from Statistics Finland's quarterly statistics on general government revenue and expenditure.

The data for the two latest years are preliminary and will become revised as annual national accounts data are revised. In the figure the trend has been calculated with the Tramo/Seats method. The trend can become revised in the coming periods as preliminary data are revised. As the time series of annual accounts become revised, the time series of this set of statistics will also be revised. These data are based on the information on economic development available by 18 December 2007. The data will next be revised at the end of March 2008.
