Budget revenue and expenditure for the upcoming budget year is planned based on planning documents approved by the Parliament and Government, legal acts regulating the structure of the budget, adherence to fiscal discipline, national medium-term economic development scenario, strategic and other documents. The budget expenditure should not exceed the approved budget plans. The execution of the budget revenue and expenditure plan is reported in the budget execution statements on annual basis. This section presents general aggregated data on revenue and expenditure plan of all budgets as well as its execution data.

This information allows to decide on the public sector performance, effectiveness of management and use of resources.

In order to analyse the long-term sustainability of the financial structure of Lithuanian municipalities, applying the European best practice based on standard expenditure needs and fiscal capacity assessment tools, the EU support project developed a methodology for calculating the Life Quality Index (LQI) and dividing municipalities into clusters. The municipal LQI shows the differences between Lithuanian municipalities in 2013 – 2020. Life Quality Index is the result of an aggregation system of simple indicators classified into six categories: Material living conditions; Entrepreneurship of inhabitants and business competitiveness; Health services; Educational services; Demographic, civil and public activity; Public infrastructure, quality and safety of the living environment.
