Population, Expenses, Income
With the different views on these three subjects, we cover an important amount of information that is very relevant for the city management.
The first view is a clear picture on the population growth year over year, by neighborhoods, plus the comparison in budged terms of real vs forecast income and expenses, regarding the total budged to have a clear look at the budget execution.
Following population view, you can switch on different year views, and evaluate the population by gender, age groups, district distribution and country of origin, further filtering you can discover witch foreign citizens and areas are has more density and also if we have incoming or out coming population from specific countries in specific neighborhoods. You can discover tendencies such as people are leaving the city in a particular age range and areas, so you can better manage social services, allocate or promote business or cultural activities.The Expenses show us the income view of the budget figures. If you look to year 2014 , you realize that we’ve had increase of Expenses compared to previous year and that the we’ve expend less that the forecast. The main expenses are Urban planning/Territory and the “social package” of the budget, we realize that we’ve priority on the social part and decrease the urban planning to compensate this over expenses.
In the revenues we see that we’ve done significantly lower than the forecast, especially in the direct taxes and current transfers. Direct taxes have been lower than expected and are produced by a significant decrease in the city economy. Current transfers are the funds we’re receiving from other administration, such as the central government and indicates difficulties at the country and or state level in providing such funding.
