New Open Web Reference Resource: “Cal Facts 2016” (Data/Visualizations About California’s Economy and Other Topics)

CalFacts 2016 was recently released by the Legislative Analyst’s Office, California State Legislature.

From the Website/Document:

With a state as big, as populous, and as complex as California, it would be impossible to quickly summarize how its economy or state budget works. The purpose of Cal Facts is more modest. By providing various “snapshot” pieces of information, we hope to provide the reader with a broad overview of public finance and program trends in the state.

Cal Facts consists of a series of charts and tables which address questions frequently asked of our office. We hope the reader will find it to be a handy and helpful document.

Data about the following topics is included in the document:

  • California’s Economy
  • State and Local Finance
  • Program Trends
  • Education
  • Health and Human Services
  • Criminal Justice
  • Resources
  • Transportation
  • Other Programs
