The Annual Fiscal Conditions Report, FYE 2017, for all counties in Iowa is now available on the Iowa Government Finance Initiative (IGFI) website. The customized reports include revenue and expenditure indicators that track fiscal performance of all 99 counties in Iowa. To facilitate comparison, peer averages are included to assess relative fiscal performance and conditions. In addition, recent legislative updates that impact county finances are also provided as part of the report.

Published annually for the past four years, the reports use the latest US Census data to provide key socioeconomic indicators for each county which provide the context in which the financial data can be understood. Biswa Das, an assistant professor of community and regional planning at Iowa State University and the IGFI program leader; Christopher Seeger, ISU professor of landscape architecture; and ISU Extension and Outreach staff Bailey Hanson, GIS systems analyst, and Cindy Kendall, program coordinator, are co-authors of the report.
