Why it Matters: The "Stress Meter" provides a broad brush overview of the Indicator Scores over time. The graph allows one to get an overall picture of the soundness of local governments, the trend of stability over time, and to quickly identify local units that may need help. The lower the number the more fiscally sound a local unit is determined to be, with three color categories; shades of green, blue and red, green being least stressed. (n080) (o56)

Data Source: Historical Revenue & Expense data has been loaded from state available public data that each municipality files annually, and includes all fund types. Future Year data is loaded from the community's own budget or forecast projections and typically only includes General and other Governmental Funds. (n016)
