New report examines how federal tax dollars are spent locally

Athens County Job and Family Services has put together a report examining how our federal tax dollars are spent in all of the counties in Ohio’s newly configured Sixth and 15th Congressional Districts. The report looks at items such as the following:
  • How many people receive food, cash and medical assistance in each county in the district,
  • How many people receive some form of government healthcare,
  • How much the average resident in each county pays in federal taxes, compared to how much each person receives in federal funds spent in each county,
  • How many people work for the government in some capacity.
