Part II: Historical general government data

Table A1: Commonwealth general government sector cash revenue,
outlays and surplus(a)

Table A1:  Commonwealth general government sector cash revenue, outlays and surplus

(a) There is a break in the series between 1998-99 and 1999-00. Data for the years up to and including 1998-99 are consistent with the cash ABS GFS reporting requirements. From 1999-00 onwards, data are derived from an accrual ABS GFS reporting framework, with revenues proxied by receipts from operating activities and sales of non-financial assets, and outlays proxied by payments for operating activities and purchases of non-financial assets. Due to methodological and data-source changes associated with the change, time series data which encompasses measures derived under both cash and accrual accounting should be used with caution.

(b) Following recent changes to the Australian National Accounts standards, the surplus measures in this table, from 1998-99 onwards, incorporate payments by the general government sector in respect of accumulated PNFC superannuation liabilities. These payments are not incorporated prior to 1998-99.

(e) Estimates.

(p) Projections.

(a) There is a break in the series between 1998-99 and 1999-00. Data for the years up to and including 1999-99 are consistent with the cash ABS GFS reporting requirements. From 1999-00 onwards, data are derived from an accrual ABS GFS reporting framework, with total revenue proxied by receipts from operating activities and sales of non-financial assets. Due to methodological and data-source changes associated with the change, time series data which encompasses measures derived under both cash and accrual accounting should be used with caution.

Table A3: Commonwealth general government sector net debt
(as at end of financial year)(a)

Table A3:  Commonwealth general government sector net debt (as at end of financial year)

(a) The net debt series used in this table incorporates Treasury estimates for the period 1974-75 to 1986-87 and published ABS data for the period 1987-88 to 1999-2000 (Public Sector Financial Assets and Liabilities, Cat. No. 5513.0). Comparable net debt data have been collected by the ABS only since 1988. Treasury estimates were constructed by deducting annual net borrowing - defined as the ABS cash deficit - from the ABS measure of the stock of net debt at end June 1988.

(e) Estimates.

(p) Projections.
