Screenshot of questions under the 'views' heading on the website

When you navigate to a report on Open FI$Cal, you initially see a number of pre-designed questions on the left side of the screen, under the heading “Views”. Clicking on any of these questions will filter the data in the report to show the answer to the question. We have pre-selected questions of interest that provide examples of the kinds of things you can do with the data on Open FI$Cal.

If you have different questions of your own, you can filter and visualize the data yourself (see Filtering and Drilling Down).

If you think you have filtered the data to answer a question that will be of general interest, and you think it should be included as one of the Views, please email a link to your filtered report, along with an explanation of the question it answers, to transparency@fiscal.ca.gov.
