Release Information

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

  • Framework: ESA 2010
  • Measurement: Millions of euros at current prices (Mil. EUR)
  • Adjustment: Not seasonally adjusted (NSA)
  • Native frequency: Quarterly

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.
