In the upper right hand corner, you will see options for the different graphs and tables. There are five graph types overall: an area graph, and area graph by percentage, a line graph, a pie graph, and a bar chart. There is also always a table view below any chart or graph. The table allows you to zoom-in on the detailed financial data selected in the chart or graph above.

In reviewing multiple years of data, you may see “spikes” in the individual years; this can be due to unexpected expenses, such as a capital project, equipment failure, or a specific event that required additional funds. You can drill-down into Opengov site to learn more about what exactly those expense or revenues are categorized.
