What data is expected?

National government budget at a high level, that is the planned government expenditure for the upcoming year, and not the actual expenditure. Open budget data allows for well-informed publics: showing where money is spent on, how public funds develop over time, and why certain activities are funded. We recommend that you consult our methodology section for more information.

    Details

    The data is available since 2014 in CSV and XML. The data asset is also available on Finnish data portal Avoindata.fi. On the page ( http://budjetti.vm.fi/indox/index.jsp ) data is available in PDF and HTML but not in CSV, XLS or neither through API. The page is hosted by Ministry of Finance. The main datasets are the ones Government proposes to the Parliament. The Parliament amends the budget perioidically.
