Functional Breakout of $2,805,350 decrease in expenditures from 6/30/11 to date
The two charts above represent the percentage of total spending (left) and the percentage of cuts made to spending by functional category (right). If cuts were made proportionally, one would expect the percentages for functional areas to be the same in both graphs. The fact that total spending on administration is 11.30% but that 16.61% of the cuts came from administration indicates that cuts to administration are proportionally higher. The converse is true.
