1/ "Actual" data is based on the new budget classification which corresponds to the IMF GFS 2001 (modified to cash basis). With the  exception of year 2005/2006, "Budget" figures are kept at their old cash/ accrual basis and presented in the same classification approved by the parliament during the years they were passed. Therefore, comparison between budgeted and actual aggregates has to be taken with caution when carried out for analytical purposes.
