Monthly public finances analysis
IFS receives support from the ESRC to publish a monthly press release comparing the growth in receipts and spending over the year to date with what is implied by the latest Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) forecast for the year as a whole. The aim is to improve the quality of debate on the public finances by complimenting the analysis produced by city economists and the OBR.

The press release is distributed free of charge to journalists, civil servants and anyone else who requests it. They are published here online and on the press release pages. To sign up to receive these as email alerts, contact Bonnie Brimstone.
