HM Treasury publishes a number of data releases which fall within the scope of National Statistics; a Code of Practice that sets out key principles and standards for official statisticians to follow and uphold.

There are:

National Statistics on public expenditure. The Public Expenditure Statistical Analyses (PESA) National Statistics release is published annually and presents public spending outturns against the budgetary framework as well as analysis by function, economic category and territory (country and region). Key public spending outturn series (certain public spending budgetary data and public spending by function and economic category) are updated three times a year and released in accordance with the National Statistics Code of Practice.

The public sector finances statistical bulletin (jointly with the Office for National Statistics), contains monthly data on the key fiscal aggregates of current budget, borrowing and debt, together with some details of central government spending and receipts.

Monthly data on the UK foreign exchange reserves.
