Where Are State Funds Spent? The Distribution of Spending across California Regions. CRB 08-017
Jones, Martha
California Research Bureau
What does the geographic distribution of state spending look like? Are there regions of the state that receive more than their "fair share" of state funds? How is a region's "fair share" defined and calculated? This report examines the geographic distribution of state spending across nine regions: the San Francisco Bay Area, Central Coast, Far North, Inland Empire, San Joaquin Valley, Sacramento Metro, San Diego, Sierras and South Coast. State expenditures are presented for major program areas such as health, education, public assistance, social services, and transportation. (The same fiscal year, FY 2002-03, is used wherever possible.) The many detailed tables provide a new perspective on state expenditures, one that has not been previously analyzed. In order to gain a comprehensive picture of state spending by region, this report uses three approaches. The first approach examines state appropriations (as reported by the state); the second examines local revenues from state sources (as reported by local jurisdictions); and the third considers state expenditures for major program areas as reported by individual state departments. (Contains 1 exhibit, 148 tables, and 12 charts.)
