Why it Matters: The Expenditures Analysis graph correlates the size of municipalities, as measured by Total Expenditures, and Expenditures per capita respectively. The municipality on the far right has the largest budget. The municipality on the far left has the smallest budget. The higher up you travel on the graph indicates municipalities that spend the most per capita. For comparison purposes, Capital Outlay and Extraordinary Items have been excluded from the Expenditures Calculations. (n015) (o19)

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)
