Government finance

Government finances offer important information regarding the economic status of a country, within it about the general government sector. As a main rule in the European Union member countries the government sector deficit may be 3% of the GDP at most; government debt ratio maximum 60% of the deficit. In case these conditions - the conditions for introducing the Euro also - are not met by a member state the excessive deficit procedure is launched against that state. Statistics regarding the government sector offer, beside deficit and debt related data, information about sums of revenue and expenditure as well as about their content.
