Series pulled from OECD Statistics Database Online

 GovTotalOutlays%GDP - General Government expenditures - Government total outlays (% of GDP), including forecast up to 2017.

Data Source: data was obtained from http://www.oecd.org/eco/outlook/economicoutlookannextables.htm. The main source was from the Fiscal balances and public indebtedness Annex Table 25. This data was compared with data from https://data.oecd.org/gga/general-government-spending.htm which also contains historical data from total government expenditures negligible variances were identified.

Data from the outlook series was then added from 1998-2017. The current series in IFs goes from 1993 to 2013. This was a simple update that replaced 1998-2013 with more refined and current data and added 2014-2017 forecasts to the series.

Financial liabilities are measured at market value. For more details, see Sources & Methods of the OECD Economic Outlook (&nbsp http://www.oecd.org/eco/sources-and-methods.htm).
