Statement 10: Historical Australian
Government Data

Deflating real spending growth by the consumer price index

The 2009‑10 Budget, including the historic series, calculates real spending growth using the Consumer Price Index (CPI) as the deflator. Prior to the 2008‑09 Budget the non‑farm GDP deflator (NFGDP) was used and has therefore been shown in this statement for comparative purposes. The change from using the non‑farm GDP deflator to the CPI provides a more accurate depiction of real government spending growth.
