EU Budget Query

Example Query: word search in headings

What are the amounts budgeted for matters related to fisheries and aquaculture, and under which headings for 2018?

This query returns all the amounts for budget lines with the keywords “fisheries” or “aquaculture” in their description. In the EU Budget Vocabulary, the description of budget lines is called “Nomenclature”. Nomenclature has several sub-classes: Title, Chapter, Article, Item and Sub-Item. Only Articles, Items and Sub-Items can have amounts related to them, for example:

  • Title 11: Maritime affairs and fisheries
    • Chapter 11 06: European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF)
      • Article 11 06 60: Promoting sustainable and competitive fisheries and aquaculture, balanced and inclusive territorial development of fisheries areas and fostering the ....: €335 000 000

Since amounts are always represented at their lowest level of granularity, it is safe to add up the amounts found in the data.

The query can be adapted to look for other keywords in the description of budget lines. For inspiration on keywords to look for, you could use Eurovoc[1] or any other list of government policy areas, such as the Data Theme Name Authority List[2].
