This chart shows that surplus (a number above zero) or deficit (less than zero) as a proportion of GDP (the total value of goods and services produced by the economy).

EU rules say that countries using the euro are not allowed to have an annual deficit of more than 3% of GDP, but several countries have failed to keep to that rule in recent years.
