Forecast Central Government Budget and Public Finances
The Swedish National Financial Management Authority, ESV, makes independent forecasts and analyses of the central government budget and public finances.
The forecasts constitute a ground for fiscal policy and are based on current decisions and proposed legislation from the Government and the Riksdag. Parlementary resolution and notifications have to be concrete in order for ESV to estimate the effects on public finances.
ESV’s forecasts are published four times a year and are based on ESV's assessment of the macroeconomic development and on financial reporting from government agencies.
