Methodology

The Empire Center’s Budget Spend-O-Meter project reflects the all funds financial plan disbursements of New York’s state government for the current fiscal year (April 1, 2016 – March 31, 2017). The Spend-O-Meter calculates the amount spent since 12:00 am on April 1, 2016.

The Spend-O-Meter calculates the amount based on the “clock time” of the viewer’s computer. Viewers with incorrect time setting or malfunctioning computer clocks may see inaccurate numbers.

Use the Empire Center’s State Budget Tool to see where the money is going.
