Explore the Budget & Finance Interactive Web Tool

Thurston County now offers budget and financial information that’s easier to view and explore with the help of an interactive web tool developed by OpenGov, Inc.

This interactive web site tool allows you to visualize, explore and compare the county’s revenues and expenses in various ways. For example:

  • You can compare overall revenues or expenses for the county.
  • You can explore the revenues or expenses for a department, a program, or even a very specific program area.
  • You can compare revenues or expenses across years.

The different options and combinations are almost endless.


The interactive web tool also allows you to visualize the information in various ways, giving you the option to choose the type of graph or chart you prefer. Options include:

  • Bar graphs
  • Pie graphs
  • Line graphs
  • Stacked graphs
  • Percentage stacked graphs
  • Tables

You can also sort or arrange the information in the graphs from large to small, alphabetically, and various other sorting options. And with every viewing and sorting option, there is a plain text table of the information at the bottom of the page—just scroll down to see the table of information.
