Each fiscal year the Department of Veterans Affairs’ Office of Policy and Planning publishes the annual Geographic Distribution of VA Expenditures (GDX) Report for the public and all stakeholders. The GDX report provides the estimated dollar expenditures for major VA programs at the state, county, and Congressional District levels. Expenditure data are grouped by the following categories: Compensation and Pension; Education and Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment; Insurance and Indemnities; Construction and Related Costs; General Operating Expenses and Related Costs; Loan Guaranty; and Medical Expenditures. The GDX Report also includes Veteran population estimates at the state, county and Congressional District level and the number of unique patients who used VA health care services.
The GDX Infographic provides a short narrative on GDX, highlights a few statistics from the GDX FY18 Report and explains how GDX makes contributions to strategic priorities. It includes one visual showing the Veteran population and the total VA expenditures for the last 10-years.
