Technical notes


PBO technical notes are published to help explain the underlying data, concepts and methodologies that the PBO utilises in preparing costings of policy proposals and analyses of the budget and fiscal policy settings.  The focus of PBO technical notes is different from that of PBO research reports which are aimed at informing public understanding of budget and fiscal policy issues more broadly.


Technical notes are listed below in date order, with the most recent first.
