State Handbook of Economic, Demographic, and Fiscal Indicators 2006

As state and local economic conditions and demographic patterns change, policymakers may consider adjusting their policies on taxes and spending programs. These adjustments become more difficult when economic and demographic changes depart from historical trends.

Policymakers, public officials, policy analysts and others concerned about such issues will find useful data on population, poverty rates, per capita state personal income, state and local revenues, expenditures, tax rates, and property tax relief programs in this sixth edition of the AARP Public Policy Institute's biennial databook. Since 1993, the Handbook has been contributing to more informed public policy decisions by providing economic, demographic, and fiscal information. (451 pages)

The 2006 compilation is divided into three sections:

  • Summary descriptions of each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, as well as the entire United States

  • Selected state economic, demographic, and fiscal data in separate tables and maps

  • Data sources and explanations of appropriate concepts or terms
