State Government General Fund Expenditures Per Full-Time Equivalent Student Per $1,000 of Per Capita Personal Income in Arizona
State government general fund support for higher education has declined over time, especially for universities since 1999. The state government general fund is just one of the sources of higher education funding. Spending is measured per full-time-equivalent pupil. The "per $1,000 of per capita income" measure automatically adjusts for inflation and per capita economic growth.
