The Financial Indicator Graphs (FIG) provide an opportunity for Albertans to explore a municipality’s financial and statistical data in the context of the minimum, median and maximum of the same municipal type.

The FIG dashboard is an upgraded version of the static pdf reports previously made available to municipal administration and councils, and serves as an important supplement to the Municipal Measurement Index (MMI).

The visualizations contain data collected from municipalities from 2009 to the most recently completed fiscal year and are refreshed on a biweekly basis.

FIG visualizations include:

  • Residential Equalized Tax Rate
  • Non Residential Equalized Tax Rate
  • Percent of Debt Limit Used
  • Residential Assessment as a Percentage of Total Equalized Assessment
  • Non Residential Assessment as a Percentage of Total Equalized Assessment
  • Long Term Municipal Debt Per Capita
  • Major Revenue Sources Per Capita
    • Net Municipal Property Taxes
    • Sales and User Charges
    • Government Transfer
  • Net Accumulated Surplus Per Capita
  • Major Expenditures Per Capita by Type
    • Salaries, Wages and Benefits
    • Contracted and General Services
    • Materials, Goods, Supplies and Utilities
    • Interest and Banking
    • Amortization of Tangible Capital Assets
  •  Major Expenditures Per Capita by Broad Function
