Release Information

Public (general government) finances in Cyprus, with categorized expenditure and revenue items, in euros, quarterly since 1995.

Although Cyprus acceded to the euro zone in 2008, it reported two euro-valued "questionnaires" (spreadsheets) to Eurostat with periods from 1995Q1. They were:

  • ESA95 Questionnaire 2501 - Quarterly non-financial accounts of general government (i.e., expenditures)
  • ESA95 Questionnaire 2502 - Quarterly non-financial accounts of general government (i.e., revenues)

As of November 2014, CYSTAT switched to a single spreadsheet, ESA2010 Questionnaire 2500.
