Why it Matters: Large debt levels relative to the ability of the unit to generate revenue are a clear sign of fiscal distress. This variable is constructed by taking Governmental Activities Long-term debt and dividing it by the Taxable Value of the municipality. Any unit with a debt to taxable value ratio above 6 percent is scored a 1 and those beneath it a 0. (n001) (o301)

Data Source: The historical data presented has been loaded from information provided by the US Census Bureau or by the State Treasurer or Comptroller's office.
