Fiscal Sustainability Report 2016
Abstract: The NIER assesses the long-term sustainability of Sweden’s
public finances annually at the government’s request. Public finances can
be considered sustainable if government income under current rules is
sufficient to fund future expenditure to maintain the public sector
commitment. The assessment is based on long-term projections of government
income and expenditure under various assumptions. The projection horizon
generally extends to 2040, but the report also contains projections through
to the year 2100. The aim of sustainability assessments of this kind is not
to produce longterm forecasts but to identify potential future imbalances
in public finances at an early stage.
