1) * Preliminary The table presents a comparison of the net lending of the sub-sector Social security funds and the deficit/surplus of funds for the previous four years.
In addition to national accounts net lending, Finland publishes no deficit/surplus level for the sub-sector Social security funds (S.1314). In particular, no balance figure exists for the sub-sector Employment pension schemes (S.13141), which could systematically be compared with net lending in national accounts.
Therefore, the table presents as the starting figure the surplus/deficit of the sub-sector "Other social security funds", which is based on the financial statement data of the institutions belonging to this sub-sector. The effect of the Employment pension schemes sub-sector on the surplus/deficit is presented as a carry-over item (1) in the table. A carry-over item is the employment pension schemes' net lending in the latest published national accounts sector accounts; the key components of the net lending are also specified in the table.
Possible other differences are presented in adjustment item 2.
The data corresponds to the data in the EDP notification table 2D.
