Municipal Fiscal Indicators Dashboard

Municipal Fiscal Indicators contains the most current financial data available for each of Connecticut's 169 municipalities. Dashboard data is based upon the audited financial statements that are filed annually with the State of Connecticut, Office of Policy and Management, Office of Finance and from financial information submitted by municipalities derived from their financial accounting systems. These key indicators provide insights into the financial health of each municipality and can help policymakers and citizens make informed decisions.

You can access the data used to develop this dashboard in the municipal fiscal indicators datasets here.

Demographic Data

The charts below present trends in population, labor, and unemployment. School enrollment data, including net current education expenditures are also displayed. These demographic data provide important context when assessing the financial health of each municipality.

Financial Statements

The following sections present financial data relating to, or having an impact upon, a municipality's financial condition. Please note that for some municipalities certain charts may appear blank, as not all municipalities reported all data. 

Debt Data

The charts below provide insight into the financial obligations of each municipality and its ability to manage its debt. Information about the net pension liability, total net OPEB liability and total bonded long-term debt is displayed. 

Fund Balance Data

In general terms, fund balance is the excess of fund assets and deferred outflow of resources over fund liabilities and deferred inflow of resources. It is often considered the equity (net position) of the fund. However, there are a number of constraints that can be placed upon the use of this fund balance. To that regard, the unrestricted and unassigned fund balance are two measures for determining the available amount of fund balance.
The unrestricted fund balance measures the amount of fund balance for which there are no external restrictions on the use of fund balance. The unassigned fund balance measures the amount of fund balance for which there are no external or internal constraints (constraints by the municipality itself) on the use of fund balance.

Operating Data

The charts below provide insight into the revenue and expenditure patterns of each municipality and can help identify areas of potential fiscal stress.  

Expenditure Data by Function

The charts below provide an in-depth breakdown of expenditures by function (education, public works, public safety, etc.) for each municipality. The data displayed is from state fiscal year 2021.
