Government Budget 50% open


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.

    Reviewer comments

    Added another document: namely the draft budget 2016-2017. Hence, not the full approved budget. Therefore, I have indicated that the data is not up to date (only a previous draft of the budget available).
