Data-Z is a free database of state, city, and federal information with data from A to Z. We started Data-Z (formerly State Data Lab in 2012 to provide tools and external data to give more context to our analysis of government financial information. The site, which is free to use, enables citizens, the press, legislators and staff, think tanks, and financial analysts to better understand their governments’ financial and economic condition. We offer financial, economic, and demographic data for the 50 states, 75 largest U.S. cities, and the federal U.S. government, along with tools ranging from graphs to regression, ranking, and compound growth analysis.
