Notes:    1. The data presented in these tables are consistent with the country and regional analyses (CRA) published by HM Treasury in Chapter 9 of Public Expenditure Statistical Analyses (PESA) 2009. The figures were taken from the HM Treasury public spending database in December 2008 and the regional distributions were completed in January and February 2009; 2. The data are based on a subset of spending - identifiable expenditure on services - which is capable of being analysed as being for the benefit of individual countries and regions. Expenditure that is incurred for the benefit of the UK as a whole has not been taken into account in calculating the spend per head; 3. There is an inconsistency across allocation methods between Non-Departmental Public Bodies (NDPBs) with similar underlying information, particularly on capital spending, making it very difficult to assess the robustness of the method.
