1 How North Carolina Compares A Compendium of State Statistics March 2017 Prepared by the N.C. General Assembly Program Evaluation Division

2 Preface The Program Evaluation Division of the North Carolina General Assembly was established in June 2007 to evaluate whether public services are delivered in an effective and efficient manner and in accordance with the law. As part of that mission, the Division is charged with developing quantitative indicators for measuring the activities performed and services provided by state agencies and the extent to which the activities and services are achieving desired results. How North Carolina Compares provides a framework on selected benchmarks for ranking North Carolina relative to other states and may be useful when evaluating ultimate outcomes of state government programs. This fifth edition of this publication ranks North Carolina on areas including population, health, taxes, expenditures, and education. Data were extracted from the U.S. Census Bureau and other national databanks to assure uniformity of measurement across states. This publication was designed as a quick reference that allows state comparisons across indicators, and we encourage feedback from members of the General Assembly on ways to improve its usefulness. We have provided a guide to reading the compendium on page ii, followed by a summary of how North Carolina ranks on each of the 23 indicators. As described in the reader s guide, the value states aspire to, when known, was ranked first. Otherwise, the highest value was ranked first. Sincerely, John W. Turcotte Director Program Evaluation Division

8 Change in Rank To determine change in rank, the rank for each indicator was compared to that indicator s rank in the last edition of this compendium, which was published in For both compendiums, the value states aspire to was ranked first, when known. Otherwise, the highest value was ranked first. North Carolina s rank on an indicator improved if its rank number decreased, and this change is indicated with a. For example, North Carolina s rank improved for per capita state expenditures because North Carolina ranked 8 th on this indicator in this compendium and 13 th in the last compendium. North Carolina s rank on an indicator declined if its rank number increased, and this change is indicated with a. For example, North Carolina s rank declined for percentage of population without health insurance because North Carolina ranked 40 th on this indicator in this compendium and 35 th in the last compendium. North Carolina s rank on an indicator stayed the same if its rank number did not change, and this lack of change is indicated with a =. For example, North Carolina s rank stayed the same for per capita state taxes because North Carolina ranked 19 th on this indicator in this compendium and the last compendium. The table below tallies how many times North Carolina s rank improved, declined, or stayed the same on the 23 indicators included in this compendium.

41 States aspire to have high bond ratings from the three rating services (Moody s Investor Services, Standard & Poor s Corporation, and Fitch Ratings). North Carolina and 10 other states ranked 1 st in bond ratings for general obligation bonds in November 2016, receiving the highest rating from all three bond rating services. In November 2014, North Carolina and nine other states ranked 1 st on this indicator. States are ranked by the average value of their bond rating on a 10-point scale with a AAA rating equal to 10 points. State bond ratings affect the interest rates paid when state governments issue general obligation bonds. General obligation bonds are issued for funding permanent capital improvements such as buildings and roads. These bonds are repaid by levying taxes, and voter approval is required by the North Carolina Constitution. Source: N.C. Department of the State Treasurer (2016, November).

This measure does not describe how state and local debt might differ, for example, by the types of debt instruments available to state and local governments.

47 States aspire to high spending per pupil in K 12 education. North Carolina ranked 44 th in total spending (all sources) per pupil at $8,287 in Fiscal Year The 50- state average was $11,470. In , North Carolina ranked 45 th on this indicator. In previous editions, the Program Evaluation Division used state funding (revenues) per pupil instead of total expenditures (spending) per pupil. Because many states rely more heavily on local property taxes than North Carolina, reporting only state funding understates funding available in other states. The revised measure is uniform nationally and is adjusted for inflation to allow comparability across years. Although funding per pupil is not as useful of an indicator as spending per pupil, North Carolina ranked 48 th in total revenues per pupil at $8,573 in Fiscal Year The 50-state average was $12,901. Revenue includes all federal, state, and local funding. North Carolina s reported total spending was lower than total revenues because spending refers only to current spending and does not include revenue used for financing and application of funds for long-term debt.
