Financial Accounts of the Government Sector

Since September 2014 the financial accounts of the government sector are provided by Statistics Austria. Currently the data includes the periods 2012 until 2019 on an annual basis. Quarterly data is available from 1st quarter 2012 until the 4th quarter 2019.

For all other sectors data is provided by the Austrian National Bank (OeNB). The financial and non-financial accounts should form a consistent system where the accounting balance from the former should in theory reflect the accounting balance of the latter. In practice deviations are possible. 

Description of result table

The table is structured into the four subsectors (S.1311 Central government, S.1312 State government, S.1313 Local government, S.13414 Social security funds) and the General government.

In the final results of the subsectors, according to the accounting standards of ESA2010, both the asset-and liability side are consolidated. The sum of all subsectors is not identical with General government sector because in the latter case also the consolidation adjustment between the subsectors is considered.

Furthermore please take note that the values on the liability side of the general government sector, especially the debt securities, deviate from the public gross debt since the EDP debt level uses nominal values whereas in ESA2010 debt securities are recorded at market value.
