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.
