The Fiscal Policy Space Data Portal

Data for the FPS project have been collected by a team from the University of Illinois at Chicago’s College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs from a variety of sources for 100 central cities of the largest metropolitan areas in the US. The user is invited to identify a variety of variables that are linked to a city’s underlying fiscal position.

The data sources include the Census Bureau, Comprehensive Financial Reports, state statutes, city ordinances, Newsbank-Access World News, as well as data collected by the Government Finance Officers Association and Merritt Research.
