Fiscal Effort across 50 U.S. States and the District of Columbia for 2019
Fiscal effort is the amount of money spent by the state and federal government on ID/DD supports and services per $1,000 of statewide personal income. In other words, how much a state spends on ID/DD services considering state wealth.
Fiscal effort lets us compare how much money different states spend on services and supports for people with ID/DD, even though states have different policies and state wealth.
Fiscal effort for the United States in 2019 was $4.60. Nevada spent as little as $1.61 per $1,000 of income, whereas the District of Columbia spent as much as $9.40 per $1,000 of income.
