In 2014, Slovenia provided USD 62 million in net ODA (preliminary data), which represented 0.13% of gross national income (GNI) and a 0.3% decrease in real terms from 2013. Slovenia is the 24th largest donor of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) in terms of official development assistance (ODA) as a percentage of GNI and the 27th donor in terms of volume.
The 2014 edition of National Accounts of OECD Countries, General Government Accounts is an annual publication, dedicated to government finance which is based on the System of National Accounts 2008 (SNA 2008) for all countries except Chile, Japan, Korea and Turkey (SNA 1993). It includes tables showing government aggregates and balances for the production, income and financial accounts as well as detailed tax and social contribution receipts and a breakdown of expenditure of general government by function, according to the harmonised international classification, COFOG. These detailed accounts are available for the general government sector. Data also cover the following sub-sectors, according to availability: central government, state government, local government and social security funds.
The data in this publication are also available on line via www.oecd-ilibrary.org under the title OECD National Accounts Statistics, General Government Accounts (http://dx.doi.org/10.1787/na-gga-data-en).
