Our interactive visualisation tool on 'Government expenditure by function' is now updated with the latest available data for 2016.

Are you interested in knowing how much your country´s government is spending on health, education or defence compared with other EU Member States?

Using our visualisation tool, you can easily see the structure of general government expenditure in your country, the other Member States, EFTA countries and the EU as a whole. You can choose to display these expenditure data for different categories and to compare them to other countries with a bar chart ( Bar chart icon ).
