US Pension Tracker provides information about the financial status of public pension systems in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
The site contains relies on actuarial, budgetary, demographic, and other financial data from a number of sources, notably Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports (CAFRs) provided by state pension systems. Population and household data are from the U.S. Bureau of the Census, and U.S. Treasury yields are from the U.S. Department of the Treasury. We retrieved state expenditures and revenue from the National Association of State Budget Officers (NASBO).
