Methodology

New York’s All Funds budget, which includes revenues from both state and federal sources, has more than doubled since fiscal year 1988, when the state spent $85.7 billion (in 2018 dollars).

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.

Empire Center Logo "...the Empire Center is the think tank that spent months trying to pry Covid data out of Mr. Cuomo's government, which offered a series of unbelievable excuses for its refusal to disclose...five months after it (the Empire Center) sued, Team Cuomo finally started coughing up some of the records." -Wall Street Journal, February 19, 2021
