Supplementary notes

The following must be taken into consideration. According to the source, a quality evaluation shows that the significant increase in the number asylum seekers from August 2015 to March 2016 und the subsequent workload for reporting outlets did not allow for timely determination of expenditure. Therefore a large part of the expenditure was entered later in 2016, according to the Federal Statistical Office. Therefore figures for 2015 are under-evaluated and over-evaluated for 2016.
