Description for Figure 2 Departmental Spending Trend Graph

Figure 2

As shown in the graph, sunset programs peak in 2016/2017 when the Agency conducts the 2016 Census of Population and the 2016 Census of Agriculture, and drop sharply in 2017/2018 as these activities begin to wind down. This pattern is typical for the Agency, and is a result of the census program cycles. The graph also shows that voted spending reduces significantly over the six-year period as a result of the Deficit Reduction Action Plan and expenditures incurred in the first three-years to compensate equivalent salary expenditures to meet legal obligations of the employer.
