Fiscal statistics for Sweden 1719-2003

Klas Fregert () and Roger Gustafsson

Abstract: We construct yearly fiscal series for Sweden between 1719 and 2003 including expenditures, revenues, deficits and debt. We present measures for the fiscal branch of the central government as well as for the consolidated fiscal and monetary branch, which includes seigniorage. We evaluate the reliability and consistency of the series by calculating the difference between budget deficits and the change in debt to test if the differences are serially uncorrelated around zero, which we confirm.

Keywords: Fiscal Policy; Expenditures; Revenues; Deficits; Government debt; Seigniorage; (follow links to similar papers)
