Budget deficit in Slovenia

The budget deficit of a country is the result of all its claims and liabilities. This includes incomes and expenses, repayments and building of new debts in other countries, but also domestic positions of the government, such as social insurances, local authorities and communities. It is the financial balance of the economic accounts. In simple terms: If a country at the end of the year has more money, than at at the beginning, it is a surplus - it is less, it is called deficit.

The budget balance in Slovenia in the period between 1998 and 2019 varied between -7.06 billion Euro and +398.23 million Euro. In 2019 was reached a balance of 279.20 million Euro.

In ratio to population, this equals a surplus of 134 Euro per capita in Slovenia. For comparison, the average debt per capita in the European Union was in the same year at 332 Euro.
