General government revenue grew by EUR 1.5 billion from the corresponding quarter of the previous year. Respectively, expenditure increased by EUR 1.0 billion. Due to the increased revenue and expenditure, the financial position (net lending) of general government improved by EUR 0.5 billion from the corresponding quarter of the year before and stood at minus EUR 1.4 billion. The change in total revenue amounted to 2.4 per cent from the previous quarter. The change in total expenditure was 1.1 per cent from the previous quarter.

The data for the two latest years are preliminary and will become revised as annual national accounts data are revised. The trend shown in the Figures has been calculated with the Tramo/Seats method. The change in total revenue and expenditure from the previous quarter has been calculated from seasonally adjusted time series. Seasonally adjusted and trend time series always become revised against new observations irrespective of whether the original time series becomes revised or not. Further information on the seasonal adjustment method: http://www.tilastokeskus.fi/til/tramo_seats_en.html . 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 15 December 2010. The data will next be revised at the end of March 2011.
