Cost of Government Reports

With every dollar earned, citizens do more than just purchase goods and services from the private sector, they also purchase the services of government. How much of every dollary earned do citizens pay for government services?  In order to determine the cost of government the Center for Public Lands and Rural Economics at Utah State University calculated population and per capita income data to determine the price of government per dollar earned by taxpayers.
