Release Information

For Denmark, short-term trends in public (government) income and expenses by different types of transactions. 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 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 (revenues, expenses, taxes, duties, income transfers) are based on current prices. Taxes and duties are recorded according to the accrual principle.

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

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.
