This paper reports on trends in NSW State finances between 2002-03 and 2017-18 (inclusive). For most of the key indicators, the paper also shows trends by Parliament for the current (56th) Parliament and previous three Parliaments.
Note that the NSW public sector (the total State sector) is made up of three sub-sectors: the general government sector, the public non-financial corporations sector, and the public financial corporations sector. Note also that the figures for the years 2002-03 to 2015-16 are actual figures for the relevant year. The figures for 2016-17 are revised budget estimates (based on actual results for the 10 month period ending 30 April 2017, and updated year-end projections). The figures for 2017-18 are budget estimates.
