The aforementioned data represents core spending and does not include agency or NDPB expenditure.

In keeping with the basis of the CRA analysis, the figures exclude non-cash costs and provisions and are produced on the basis of where the benefit is estimated to be rather then where the expenditure is necessarily incurred.

Please note that not all expenditure can be apportioned to a region, as the spending benefits the whole country, and not a specific area.
