The Crown Accounts Analysis (CAA) has been discontinued and replaced with the government sector accounts, which are released with the annual National Accounts information release each year.
The CAA was based on a year ended June and recorded the financial transactions of ministers of the Crown, government departments, and offices of Parliament. The government sector accounts record the financial transactions of general government, based on a year ended March, which is consistent with the national accounts. Separate accounts are included for central and local government. In addition to the core Crown activities, central government includes Crown entities, district health boards, kindergartens, primary and secondary schools, tertiary education units, Crown research institutes, and safety authorities. Local government includes all regional councils and territorial authorities in New Zealand.
The development of government finance statistics is currently under review at Statistics New Zealand and we will advise of any future decisions in this area.
