What data is expected?

Budget data shows how tax dollars are intended to be spent, and allows residents to compare policy plans against actual spending. For purposes of this Census, budget data should include the planned budget by unit of appropriation with a programmatic description of each unit of appropriation.

This category is about budgets which are plans for expenditure (not actual expenditure in the past). (More info)

  • Department, agency, or office
  • Category or expense
  • Description of that category or expense (may be in metadata or supporting documentation)
