The data for the two latest years are preliminary and will become revised as annual national accounts data are revised. Seasonally adjusted and trend time series have been calculated with the Tramo/Seats method. The change in total revenue and expenditure from the previous quarter has been calculated from seasonally adjusted time series. Seasonally adjusted and trend time series always become revised against new observations irrespective of whether the original time series becomes revised or not. Further information on the seasonal adjustment method: http://www.tilastokeskus.fi/til/tramo_seats_en.html As the time series of annual accounts become revised, the time series of this set of statistics will also be revised. These data are based on the data sources available by 26 March 2012. The data will next be revised at the end of June 2012.
