Budgets and accounts of municipalities and regions

The budgets are published in mid-January, the provisional accounts are published in mid-March, the final accounts and the balances are published in the latter half of April. The statistic is usually published without delay in regards to the announced time.

Timeliness and time lag - final results

The statistics are published annually. The budgets are published in mid-January, the provisional accounts are published in mid-March, the final accounts and the balances are published in the latter half of April.

There is a period from the end of the reference period to the publication for budgets, provisional and final accounts of 3 months (budgets are approved by 15 October), 2.5 months and 3.5 months. The timing of the publications reflect the need to minimize corrections after publication.

Data for the final accounts are not revised. Later correction can happen, however, if errors in data or treatment of data are discovered.

Punctuality

The statistic has since 2007 been published without delay in regards to the announced time.
