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


The state budget for recent years is published as semi-structured XLS files (cell text indentation level shows budget entry hierarchy, not entirely machine-readable):

URL for state budget 2014:

  • see "4.pielikums" for the main budget and "5.pielikums" for the special / social insurance fund budget

The archive of state budget data for previous years (year 2013 shown by default, see the sidebar for earlier years):

Reviewer comments

There is an XLS file with all of the budget expenditure, therefore the budget is machine readable. I changed this category.
