International Spending Comparison

Using comparable OECD definitions (General Government expenditure), Britain is currently on the G7 average for public expenditure as a percentage of GDP, at just over 43%. The US is lowest on 35%, and France highest on 53%.

For more countries and years, see IFS International Comparisons.
