Truth in Accounting released its ninth annual Financial State of the States report, a nationwide analysis of the most recent state government financial information. This comprehensive analysis of the 50 states’ finances includes the most up-to-date state finance and pension data, trends across the states, and key findings.

This year, the study found that 40 states do not have enough money to pay all of their bills and in total the states have racked up over $1.5 trillion dollars in unfunded state debt. The study ranks the states according to their Taxpayer Burden or Surplus™, which is each taxpayer's share of state bills after available assets have been tapped. Check out the data for your state at the State Data Lab.
