These graphs were built using the data produced in the writing of Chair working paper 16-08. They show budget balance and gross debt projections for the Quebec government as a share of GDP or in 2016 dollars, for the 2016-2035 period. The projections were obtained from the SIMUL microsimulation model, according to varying hypotheses. A 2% inflation rate was assumed for the whole period; all hypotheses correspond to nominal growth rates. Working paper 16-08 offers further details regarding the model and methods used.
