Friday, 29 Mar 2019 10:59 ET
By Kelli Johnson
March 2019 -- For the financial accounts of the general government institutional sector for Austria, concurrent with dissemination of results for 2018Q4, the source has issued revisions (14 quarterly series revised, 2015 to 2018).

On 28 March, the source wrote (citation):

Die finanziellen Konten gemäß ESVG 2010 sind Teil der gesamten Kontenfolge des Sektors Staat. Die Jahresdaten umfassen derzeit die Berichtsperiode 2012 bis 2018, wobei es sich bei den Jahresdaten 2018 noch um vorläufige Daten handelt. Die Quartalsdaten umfassen den Berichtszeitraum 1.Quartal 2012 bis 4.Quartal 2018. Im Rahmen der Notifikation an Eurostat im März 2019 wurden die Berichtsjahre und –quartale von 2015Q1 bis 2018Q3 revidiert. Die Oesterreichische Nationalbank (OeNB) erstellt die finanziellen Konten für alle anderen volkswirtschaftlichen Sektoren.

In English:

The ESA 2010 financial accounts are part of the overall account sequence of the general government sector. The annual data currently covers the reporting period 2012 to 2018, with 2018 annual data still provisional. The quarterly data cover the reporting period from the 1st quarter of 2012 to the 4th quarter of 2018. As part of the notification to Eurostat in March 2019, the reporting years and quarters were revised from 2015Q1 to 2018Q3. The Oesterreichische Nationalbank (OeNB) prepares the financial accounts for all other economic sectors.

In response, we have synchronized our extract. There is no change to the corpus, mnemonics or metadata.

The series reside in the historical catalog (Austria » Government » Finances » General government) and include, for example:

  • AFLFSAGGFLNTUQ.IAUT = Assets - Loans [AF.4], (Mil. EUR, NSA)
  • AFLFSLGGFOTAUQ.IAUT = Liabilities - Other accounts receivable / payable [AF.8]
  • NALNZGGBSVGUQ.IAUT  = Balance - Gross savings balance [B8G]

Because catalog locations are subject to change, the upper-right search box on DataBuffet.com provides a "find in catalog" mode that accepts a mnemonic.
