NALAS published the first edition of the NALAS Statistical Brief: Local Government Finance Indicators in South East Europe, which is an ongoing effort of NALAS’ Fiscal Decentralisation Task Force to provide policy–makers and analysts with timely, accurate, relevant, reliable and comparable data on local government finance in South–East Europe.

Differently from the traditional annual Fiscal Decentralization Report, this “pocket size” practical booklet includes quantitative information only, in the form of tables and graphs allowing readers to quickly get an insight about local finances in one particular country and make regional comparisons with comparable data.

The report is structured in two main sections. The first part provides an overview of the size and structure of local governments in the region and regional comparisons on the status of national and subnational government finance in South-East Europe in 2018, including also data in million of Eur and in Eur per capita besides the “common” data express in percent. The second section shows the patters and evolution of national and subnational government revenues and expenditures for the period 2006-2018 through selected indicators of macro–economic performance and fiscal decentralisation.
