"Socioeconomic environment, Fiscal Structure, and Government Financial Health: Evidence from Georgia Counties"

A lack of understanding about the financial health of local government is troubling. Changes in local governments’ financial condition affects the ability of government to deliver public services. Hence, this study seeks to analyze the financial health of Georgia county governments and their main explanatory variables. The study identifies some critical determinants of financial health, focusing on economic, demographic, and fiscal policy variables using Partial Least Squares (PLS) regression.
