State and Local Finances Update for FY 2012

On December 11, 2014 usgovernmentspending.com updated the state and local spending and revenue for FY 2012 using the newly released Census Bureau State and Local Government Finances for FY 2012.  This includes state and local spending for the United States as a whole and individual states and the District of Columbia.

State and local spending and revenue for FY2012 are now actual historical spending as reported by the Census Bureau.  Previously state spending and revenue for FY2012 was actual and local spending and revenue was estimated.  The following table shows the difference between estimated and actual spending and revenue for FY2012:

FY 2012Estimated
$ billion
Actual

Spending$1,657$1,647
Revenue$1,038$1,075

We have updated the "guesstimated" state and local finances for FY2013-19.

Also updated were state and local finances for 2009, 2010, and 2011 using newly released Census Bureau revised data.
