Defense Spending by State - Fiscal Year 2015

Defense Spending by State - Fiscal Year 2015

The Defense Spending by State Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 report examines U.S. defense spending in FY 2015 at the state and local levels for the 50 states and Washington, D.C. After increasing by more than 66% when adjusted for inflation from FY 2000 to 2010, national defense spending has declined 16.6% since 2011.

The impact of these cuts depends in part on the number of defense personnel and amount of defense contract revenue in each state and region. This report highlights factors, such as the regional expenditures from military bases or private contractors, which can be used to evaluate each state's potential exposure to fluctuations in defense spending.
