Arizona State and Local Governments' Higher Education Expenditures Per Student Per $1,000 of Per Capita Personal Income
Total public funding for higher education in Arizona has been largely flat since the 1970s following a decrease in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Spending is measured per pupil. The "per $1,000 of per capita income" measure automatically adjusts for inflation and per capita economic growth. The Census Bureau data are the public-sector totals, including any local government sources. The Census Bureau data include capital outlays and all other expenditures (current operations).
