GDP valuation: Market prices. Production-based measure
Start/end months of reporting year: January/December
Base year: 1990. China GDP deflator does not equal 100 in the base year. This is due to the fact that, in the base year, there is a discrepancy between production-based and expenditure-based nominal GDP series. Reported NGDP series are production-based, while NGDP_R series are estimated using expenditure based nominal GDP in the base year and contributions to growth in subsequent years.

Latest actual data: 2013
Notes: Fiscal Balance: Data differ from official figures released by China’s Ministry of Finance mainly because of a difference in treatment of net contributions to the Budget Stabilization Fund. General Government Debt: Data differ from official figures released by China’s Ministry of Finance because IMF numbers include, from 2010 onward, the stock of local government debt outstanding as reported in the June 2011 National Audit Office Report. For subsequent years, we have followed the amortization schedule outlined in the same report.
Fiscal assumptions: The pace of fiscal consolidation is likely to be more gradual reflecting reforms to strengthen social safety nets and social security system announced at the Third Plenum reform agenda.
