HM Treasury annually publishes analyses of public expenditure outturn data by country and region as National Statistics, in chapter 8 of the command paper 'Public Expenditure Statistical Analyses'. The latest edition was published in April 2004 as Cm 6201—'Public Expenditure Statistical analyses 2004'.

The ONS have also published a one-off set of experimental statistics of sub regional government accounts for 1998. The link to the article is: http://www.statistics.gov.uk/downloads/theme other/Regional Government Accounts.pdf

However no such information is available for Rochdale in either of these sources, as it is neither published nor collected to this degree of detail.
