State and Local Revenues

Source: Kim Rueben and Carol Rosenberg, Urban Institute, April 14, 2008

From the abstract:
State and local revenues have been relatively stable over the last 30 years, growing from 13.5 percent of GDP in 1972 to 16.3 percent in 2005. However, as shown in the table, the composition of revenues has changed, with property taxes declining from 25.6 percent of revenues to only 16.6 percent. Much of this decline occurred in the 1970s.
