The tables in this publication present government finance statistics (GFS) data by Member State, for the EU-28, for the euro area and for Iceland, Norway and Switzerland. The GFS presentation shows, in an integrated way: government revenue, government expenditure, government deficit, transactions in assets and in liabilities, other economic flows, and balance sheets. It gives a clear picture of the links between these data. The publication is intended primarily for national governments, Central Banks, economic analysts and academics with an interest in government finance, although it could also be of interest to the wider public. The value-added in comparison with other publications is to give an overview of government finances from several angles with consistent information. The publication covers data since 1995. [+]
The purpose of this paper is to present the reference methodology for the calculation of the circular material use rate indicator. The circular economy aims at increasing the amount of material recovered and fed back into the economy, therefore reducing the generation of waste and limiting the extraction of primary raw materials. The circular material use rate measures the share of material recovered and fed back into the economy - thus saving extraction of primary raw materials - in overall material use. The European Commission has released a framework to monitor progress towards the circular economy. This indicator is part of that monitoring framework and is used to monitor the progress towards a circular economy on the thematic area of 'secondary raw materials'. [+]

Asociaciones de datos de ciudadanos y gobiernos: ¿Qué podemos aprender y recomendar a los grupos de la sociedad civil que trabajan en el dominio de estadísticas oficiales?en Estadisticas
The Cape Town Global Action Plan for Sustainable Development Data subscribed in 2017 at the first World Data Forum highlights the need of National Statistical Offices (NSOs) to adapt to evolving demands. This need is triggered by all kinds of decision-makers, specially from governments under constant pressures to deliver focused, tailored and timely solutions. Based on a classification framework adapted from the e-governance concept, this document takes stock of various international, regional and local initiatives thought to aid or monitor government actions and that are granting access to and use of non-traditional data sources. These are citizens to government data partnerships, that use technologies like open geospatial information platforms and can complement surveys and traditional censuses in the official statistics data stream, with special focus in demographic and social statistics. Recommendations will address the question of how civil society NGOs can strengthen their general capacities inside the statistical production processes to effectively support NSOs through collaboration projects at national and international levels.
