Research and Analysis


The Minnesota Budget Project prepares research and analysis about tax, budget, and other public policy issues affecting Minnesotans and their ability to achieve economic security. Our research and analysis is organized into four issue areas: 

  • Minnesota Budget - analysis of legislative and gubernatorial budget proposals, passed budget legislation, the state's fiscal forecasts, budget trends, budget process reforms, and tax and spending limits.
  • Minnesota Taxes - analysis of legislative tax proposals, tax policy changes, tax credits, and tax fairness in Minnesota.
  • Federal Tax and Budget - analysis of federal tax and budget proposals and outcomes, with an emphasis on how those proposals impact Minnesota.
  • Economic Security - analysis of issues related to poverty, incomes, economic opportunity, health care, hunger and nutrition, and climate change.

Current information on these issues is also available on our blog, Minnesota Budget Bites.
