Figures are taken from OECD (2016), Revenue Statistics 2016, http://dx.doi.org/10.1787/rev_stats-2016-en-fr, and are preliminary for 2015.

Year ending 31st December.

Data are on a cash basis.

Heading 2000: From 1997 the contributions to the three funds (civil servant pension fund, private school teachers pension fund and medical insurance fund) are classified as security social contributions. The reasons for the change are that the contributions either became mandatory or the fund started to be managed by public authorities in that year, thereby meeting the OECD definition of social security contributions.

Heading 2200: From 2007, this includes long-term care insurance.
