* Preliminary

1 The table contains a time series since 1995 depicting the Finnish general government gross debt and EMU debt. The general government EMU debt, i.e. general government debt to other sectors of the economy and to rest of the world, can be calculated from the gross debt by deducting internal general government debt from the gross debt balance. The data corresponds to the data in the EDP report tables 1 and 3A.
