(a) The Total Public Sector comprises General Government, Public Non-Financial Corporations and Public Financial Corporations. The sum of individual levels of government or sectors may not agree with the Total Public Sector figures due to transfers between levels of government.
(b) The multi-jurisdictional sector contains units where jurisdiction is shared between two or more governments, or classification of a unit to a jurisdiction is otherwise unclear. The main types of units currently falling into this category are the public universities.
