Abstract:At the 2011 annual meeting of the OECD Senior Budget Officials, the OECD Secretariat was invited to update its 2010‐11 report on fiscal consolidation strategies across OECD member countries, "Restoring Public Finances". In response, a questionnaire was submitted to countries in December 2011 (the "OECD Fiscal Consolidation Survey 2012"). Based on country responses and publicly available information, the Secretariat has produced 31 country notes (see Chapter 2) which provided the background for Chapter 1.
