Gross national income rose by 5.4% year-on-year

The gross national income (GNI) of the Slovak Republic in 2021 reached the value of 97.3 billion EUR, which is 5.4% higher than GNI in 2020. GNI data for the previous period since 2010 have been adjusted according to the international methodology in the range from -0.3% to +1.4% of GNI.

GNI data are published and specified by EU Member States, GNI data are published and refined by EU Member States and submitted to Eurostat at the regular autumn deadline. Data for the Slovak Republic are submitted by the Statistical Office of the Slovak Republic.

The GNI data summarize the incomes of economic entities of the Slovak Republic and from abroad and serve as a basis for determining the amounts by which the Slovak Republic contributes to the EU budget (GNI-based own resource), and is the key to setting subsidies from the EU budget. The value of GNI is determined from the value of GDP, which expresses the overall performance of the economy created in the territory of the Slovak Republic.

According to European legislation, Member States provide the EU to the Commission (Eurostat) each year with data on GNI and its components by 1 October, including the Report on Quality of the GNI Data1).

Compared to the previous publication of GNI data in 2021, the SO SR made standard routine adjustments in 2018 to 2020 on the basis of updated information from statistical and administrative data sources. In addition, the data in the 2010-2020 time series also incorporate the results of transversal reservations granted by the European Commission to all EU countries including the Slovak Republic after the end of the verification cycle for GNI-based own resource purposes. The impact of these changes on the GNI aggregate is quantified in the attached Report on the Quality of the GNI data 2022 (PDF – 160 kB).

GNI equals GDP minus primary income payable by resident institutional units to non-resident institutional units plus primary income receivable by resident institutional units from the rest of the world.

The primary income paid to the rest of the world covers the compensation of employees, property income and taxes on production and import paid to the institutions of the EU. On the other hand, the primary income received from the rest of the world includes compensation of employees, property income and subsidies received from the institutions of the EU.
