Analysis of public finance figures

The IFS receives support from the ESRC to respond to developments in the public finances throughout the year. This includes immediate responses to released public finance statistics and more extended analysis of public finance trends. The aim is to improve the quality of debate on the public finances by complimenting analysis from elsewhere, including city economists and the Office for Budget Responsibility, based on the IFS's long standing expertise in this area.

The outputs supported by this funding are listed below.
