Abstract: This report is part of an educational series on Texas state and local taxes and public expenditures. State and local government expenditures per capita and per $1,000 of personal income in Texas are compared with those of the fifty states and the District of Columbia. For each expenditure the national average, median, maximum and minimum are given along with the corresponding expenditure for Texas and Texas's rank nationally. For all state and local expenditures, Texas ranks 44th per capita and 41st per $1,000 of personal income. Texas ranks above the median on education and public safety. It ranks below the median on social services and interest expenditures. It ranks in the lowest 20% nationally on transportation, housing, environment and natural resources, and administrative expenditures.
