Govistics is the U.S.’s most comprehensive cost of government database, specializing in local government finance.  Govistics contains a decade of spending data across 8 major categories (e.g. education, public safety, social services) and 33 subcategories (e.g. K-12 education, police, welfare) for 39,000 state, county, and local governments.  Govistics also contains detailed spending data for 15,000 school districts, and its graphical interface helps users track, compare, and contextualize spending.  The data is harmonized, allowing users to perform “apples to apples” comparisons across state and county lines. Users can also download a customized spreadsheet for further analysis.
