DECEMBER QUARTER 2013 GFS RELEASE
This release presents quarterly government finance statistics on an accrual accounting basis. All tables are presented in GFS operating statement format and are for the general government sector, with the exception of Table 2 which presents data for the public non–financial corporations sector.
Quarterly GFS are released for the current financial year only, other than in the September quarter, when the quarters of the previous financial year are presented. Users requiring data for earlier periods should consult Government Finance Statistics, Australia (cat. no. 5512.0). The latest issue (2011–12) was released on 30 April 2013. Final annual GFS results for 2012–13 are scheduled for release by the ABS in April 2014.
Due to delays in supply from the Victorian Department of Treasury and Finance (Victorian DTF), Victorian General Government data for the March Quarter 2013 have been estimated by the ABS using best available sources with assistance from the Victorian DTF. This data is used in compiling the tables contained in the Main Features, Table 1 All Levels of Government – General Government, Table 4 Total State and Local, and Table 6 Victoria, Total State and Local. These estimates should be interpreted with care.
