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 2010) and a separate EU Regulation. The data reported by the different Member States are comparable with each other.
