North Dakota’s tax revenue growth is far and above other states in Pew’s data analysis, and is one of only 14 states with tax collections recovering since the recession. Total state tax collections are still 1.6 percent below their peak of the third quarter of 2013, according to Pew.

At the same time, state spending has tripled over the past decade, according to colleague Kyle Potter.
