Appendix F: Changes in State fiscal capacities over time

Total redistribution and redistribution due to revenue and expenditure assessments

The following Figures are one way of showing differences in State fiscal capacities over the period since 1992-93 (the dashed lines out to 2015-16 are indicative estimates).1 The Figures show the total differences from an equal per capita distribution of GST for each State as well breaking this total down into the differences due to the revenue and expenditure assessments.2 All of the figures have been rebased in line with growth in nominal GDP, with 2010-11 as the reference year, and all figures relate to assessment years. Figures F1 to F8 present the redistributions in millions of dollars and Figures F9 to F16 present the redistributions in dollars per capita.
