Release Information

The dataset provides the information on the trends in public (government) income and expenses by different types of transactions. The statistics indicate short-term trends.

The statistics provide a quarterly overview of the tax revenues and developments in Danish taxes and duties, as well as public expenses for public consumption and income transfers. They shed a light on current market conditions.

The data are provided by Statistics Denmark and compiled in accordance with the principles applied in the national accounts. The calculation for revenues, expenses, taxes, duties and income transfers is based on current prices.

The dataset covers income transfers from the general government sector to the households and vice-versa. Units comprised in the general government sector are those that produce non-market based benefits, destined for individual & collective consumption and for most parts, financed by taxes and duties.

All calculations are based on current prices. Taxes and duties are recorded according to the accrual principal.

Statistics are compiled under ESA 2010 and in accordance with the EU Regulation on short-term indicators of the general government sector (Kf 264/2000).

Data may be subject to revisions.

Statistics Denmark collects data from public accounts and a number of retail statistics. Data from all these different sources are not accounted for according to the same principle. To solve this, a temporal displacement of every single expense, tax or duty to the time of its levying is made.
