Truth in Accounting™ (TIA™) offers a number of publications for comlimentary download, including our Financial State of the States™ report. For the second year, the Financial State of the States™ reviewed each state's 2010 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) to offset assets against liabilities. A detailed analysis of states' pension and health care liabilities was completed to uncover all of the states'. From these calculations, Truth in Accounting™ was able to determine the true Taxpayer Burden™ for all fifty states.
Former U.S. Comptroller General David Walker says, "The 'Financial State of the States' appears to be the first study of its kind. While other organizations have compared the states’ unfunded retirement liabilities, only this study has determined the overall financial condition of every state."
