Budget 2014 Data from the Estimates of Appropriations 2014/15
The Budget Data consists of two Excel workbooks, containing data as published in the Estimates of Appropriations 2014/15:
• appropriation expenditure,
• Crown revenue and capital receipts.
Appropriation Expenditure and Revenue
The data in the workbooks for appropriations and Crown revenue is broken down by department, vote and appropriation/revenue type for 2014/15. We have also provided Actuals data covering the fiscal years ending 30 June 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013; and Estimated Actuals data for 2014.
The Data
Raw data has been placed in the Excel workbooks to allow anyone to filter, sort and manipulate the data for their own purposes. Some examples in the form of pivot tables and charts are also provided.
Information relating to the use of these Excel workbooks is contained within the workbooks on a sheet titled "Explanation". More assistance on the use of pivot tables and charts can be obtained from the Excel help system.
This data is available in Excel format only.
Links to Excel Tables
• Expenditure Data - Estimates of Appropriations 2014/15 [EXCEL 4.4MB] b14expendituredata.xls
• Revenue Data - Estimates of Appropriations 2014/15 [EXCEL 348KB] b14revenuedata.xls
Disclaimer
These workbooks support, but do not form part of, the official Budget documents. The printed copies of the Estimates and Supplementary Estimates, as tabled by the Minister of Finance on each Budget day, are the official sources for data contained in these workbooks.
The Treasury has generated these workbooks as a resource for interested persons and has taken all care to ensure the data are correct, but does not take responsibility for any errors or conclusions drawn from this data.
The Treasury does not provide technical support on the use of Excel workbooks.
Notes
These workbooks are based on the data contained in the Crown's Financial and Information System, which was used to collect and compile the raw data for the 2014/15 Estimates. They do not include data from the 2013/14 Supplementary Estimates.
Data relating to the 2014/15 fiscal year should match the 2014/15 Estimates exactly.
All data prior to the 2014/15 budget data (e.g. Actuals, Estimated Actual) is as reported in that year to the Crown's Financial and Information System by the agency. This raw data has not been restated for subsequent restructuring as reported in Part 1.2 of the Estimates (ref. s.15(2) of the PFA). Where restructuring has occurred, the sum of the detail in this workbook for data prior to the 2014/15 year will not equal the appropriation totals as reported in Part 1.2.
