The datasets provide historical data, some going back 20 to 40 years for major fiscal aggregates. Wherever possible, adjustments have been made to make the historical series consistent with the forward estimates.
All historical accounting based tables have been presented in the format adopted under Australian equivalent to International Financial Reporting Standards (A-IFRS), and Government Finance Statistics (GFS) statistical aggregates have been converted to an accruals basis.
The historical operating statement and cash flow statement have also been revised back to 2004-05 for consistency with AASB 1049 Whole of Government and General Government Sector Financial Reporting. However, some breaks in series remain.
All data sets incorporate financial information published in the 2016-17 Financial Report, 2016-17 Budget Update and 2017-18 Budget.
This statement contains the general government sector net operating result from 1996-97 presented in A-IFRS format which was first introduced for the 2005-06 budget, including the effect of removing one-off Commonwealth grants on the net result from transactions.

It also shows separately, movements due to amounts recognised in the estimated comprehensive result and amounts recognised in equity related to estimated transactions with owners in their capacity as owners.
This data contains general government sector operating expenses, sourced from the Australian Bureau of Statistics historical data, categorised by government purpose.
The underlying data from 1961-62 to 1997-98 represents a conversion from the original cash series to an accruals basis by estimating depreciation and superannuation expenses based on statistical modelling.
Consolidated government purpose classification data (XLSX 49kb)
Although the conversion provides a basis for comparison with total expenses in the current series of accrual GFS information from 1998 (in the attached table), the estimated accrued expense items have not been apportioned to individual purpose classifications.
The absence of these splits between functional classifications in the attached table data therefore represents a break in the series and it is not possible to compare individual purpose categories with those in other tables.

The datasets provide historical information from 2007-08. Wherever possible, adjustments have been made to make the series consistent with AASB 1049 Whole of Government and General Government Sector Financial Reporting.
It is important to note that due to the elimination of transactions occurring between the general government, public non-financial corporations and public financial corporations sectors in arriving at a consolidated position, not all variations in each sector will affect the overall State of Victoria result.
All data sets incorporate financial information published in the 2016-17 Financial Report, 2016-17 Budget Update and 2016-17 Budget.
