The U.S. Treasury Budget numbers for February, 2006 were released this afternoon:

Consensus: $ -115,000,000,000
Actual: $ -119,200,000,000

The "actual" figure above represents the monthly balance on the U.S. federal government's books and is compiled by The Treasury Department. A positive number represents a surplus, while a negative represents a deficit.

The "consensus" is what economists were expecting, while the "actual" is the actual or real figure.
