Visualization Notes:

Total spending on health and public welfare programs is a function of the number of people receiving assistance and the average dollar amount of assistance provided per recipient. Relative to the size of the Arizona economy, total appropriations for each agency — AHCCCS (the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System, the state’s version of Medicaid), the Department of Economic Security plus the Department of Child Safety, and the Department of Health Services — have fluctuated but have experienced little trend since the late 1980s.
