National government budget at a high level. This category is looking at budgets, or the planned government expenditure for the upcoming year, and not the actual expenditure. To satisfy this category, the following minimum criteria must be met:

  • Planned budget divided by government department and sub-department
  • Updated once a year.
  • The budget should include descriptions regarding the different budget sections.

Data Location


It has to be said that the granularity of the data is not satisfying. The budget data is available as XLS in bulk and free to use as an "amtliches Werk" according to §5 Abs 1. UrhG

No change from 2014.

Reviewer comments
