Hello! I am Gabriel Habulan, a student from UP Diliman NCPAG, and my group is trying to make a research about the macroeconomic situation throughout the years. 

Is it possible to acquire data from 1965 to 2015 of the following data points (in descending order of Priority)

1: Internal Debt and External Debt by Maturity
2: Revenues and Expenditures

Internal and External debt are already available online from your site back to 1986. We are missing 1965-1985.
REvenues and Expenditures are already available online back to 1995. We are missing 1965-1995.

Thank you for your help.

Ah, some modifications to my request!

It seems someone already requested similar data beforehand here

Updated request: 
 Internal Debt and External Debt by Maturity, 1965-1976. Even earlier debt data would be useful but not required.

I hope to from you soon, and thank you for your help!

Excuse me, I have a clarification. I am very sorry for the trouble, but I mistook these two documents
and I thought the 1986-2015 documents included the maturity. Same with the other documents I found. Though we've also managed to find other documents for some of the years. 
Final clarification of request:

1: External Debt by Maturity from 1965 to 1990, annual
2: national government expenditure by economic classification 1965 to 70, annual
3: national revenue 1965 to 1970, annual

Once more I am very sorry for the mistakes. Thank you for your consideration.

Excuse me sir, is it possible to know the progress on finding the data? 

Thank you kindly.

Also, a clarification with regards to the Revenues, can it the division between Tax Revenues and non-Tax Revenues be shown, please?
Dear Mr Habulan,

In light of your last stated request, please see the point by point discussion from our statistics division:

     1. External Debt by Maturity from 1965 to 1990, annual
         - The BTr external debt database can only produce detailed figures from 1993 onwards.

     2.  NG Expenditure by economic classification
         -  Figures relating to expenditures can be obtained from DBM.

     3.  National revenue
         - Official figures from the BTr are only available starting 1986.

Should you wish to further discuss your data requirements, or seek clarification, please email Ms Elizabeth Awayan (epawayan@treasury.gov.ph) from our statistics division and cc Dir Dominick Mariano (rdemariano@treasury.gov.ph) of our Research Service.
