Understand government debt

New profiles available at Tell the Truth Texas
provide context for local, state debt.
To help Texans better understand fiscal realities at the state and local government levels, the Texas Comptroller's office has posted new Debt-at-a-Glance profiles for the state and Texas' most populous cities and counties.


Visit the site and click around a bit to learn interesting facts about state and local community obligations. At the city and county levels, individuals can even see per capita debt — how much each resident would have to pay to settle the entity's total debt. See  how various city and county debts compare to similar entities in the state.

Contact the Comptroller's office with comments or questions. Citizen  input is invaluable in the process of creating and refining Web resources that help people to understand government debt.
Debt-at-a-Glance is intended to inform citizens, not to present comprehensive data for investors. Data is provided as of the date indicated and may not reflect debt, debt service, population or other data as of any subsequent date.
