To summarize the results presented in the first four Index reports, it is clear that Long Island has a large number of local governmental entities that local government expenditures are large and growing, and that local taxpayers are paying for 79% of the total cost of local government. In order to measure changes in the cost of local government, the Index has developed a database
that provides a nine-year history of local government expenditures and revenues for Long Island, and comparable figures for local governments and school districts in the rest of New York state (excluding New York City). By tracking changes going forward from this baseline information, Long Islanders will be able to determine whether or not efforts to reduce the cost of local government are effective.
