Time series of financial accounts have become revised

The time series of financial accounts have become revised. Changes have taken place in the whole period starting from 1997, and the changes are not limited to certain assets or sectors. The biggest revisions concern loans between financial institutions, deposits and unquoted shares. Data on general government have changed the least.

The time series correction is connected to combining the compilation of quarterly and annual financial accounts. Previously, quarterly financial accounts and annual financial accounts were compiled separately from one another. Therefore, there were two times series for the financial accounts, which were not fully congruent. Nowadays, the quarterly and annual calculations are made in the same integrated process and now the time series have also been harmonised.
