The ABS is currently determining the statistical demand for this Government Finance Estimates publication. By completing this survey you will be assisting us in assessing its relevance.
Government Financial Estimates (Cat.no.5501.0.55.001) (GFE) is compiled from initial budget forecasts. It does not take account of subsequently published or revised forecasts, such as those contained in mid-term revisions, issued by any jurisdiction.
The purpose of the GFE publication is to assist in making an assessment of each jurisdiction's initial budget on a Government Finance Statistics (GFS) basis. As budgets of different jurisdictions are brought down at different times, the GFE publication is usually released in August each year.
We would appreciate your input about your usage of GFE statistics. If you would like to make comment, please click on Begin Survey to answer a few short questions. Your responses will be kept anonymous and confidential, and any information you provide will only be used to help us determine the use of these statistics.
We thank you for your time in completing this survey.
