Compare States on Spending and Taxes

At you've been able to look at state and local spending for each state for years.

But now there's something new. Now you can list spending or tax revenue for all the states at once. That way you can line them up and compare them, on actual dollar spending, or on spending as a percent of Gross State Product.

Click the column headings to reorder the states by state spending, local spending, or combined state and local spending.

You can list overall state spending, or major spending functions like education. And you can list overall revenue, or individual taxes like property tax.

Head on over to and take a look.
