Local Government Growth

February 22, 2012 J

Yesterday we posted the state government growth rate for the past 10 years (2000 – 2010). When we gleaned those numbers from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Today we’re looking at local government growth in which Arkansas ranks #25 in the nation. If we were a football team we could be pretty happy we ranked in the top 25. But, in this case, the numbers shouldn’t give us any reason to cheer as our tax dollars aren’t always being spent wisely.

Below are the spreadsheets showing the statistics.
