WASHINGTON, May 15, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The 2015 Annual Survey of State Government Finances provides a comprehensive summary of annual survey findings for state governments. The findings show revenues, expenditures, debt, and cash and security holdings for each state, as well as a national summary of state government finances. The major source of these public finance statistics are the states' own accounting systems or through intermediate reporting systems.
Government financial data are presented within four broad activity sectors: general government, utilities, liquor stores and insurance trust sectors. The general government sector includes all government revenue and expenditure activities that are consistent with government functions, such as public protection, education, health and welfare, and the like. These activities are distinct from the business-like activities presented in the remaining three sectors (utility, liquor stores and insurance trusts).
