Negative amounts = canton receives money
Positive amounts = canton pays money

Example: In 2024, the canton of Aargau receives CHF 714 per inhabitant from the fiscal equalization system.
The canton of Zug pays CHF 2,970 per inhabitant into the fiscal equalization system in 2024.

Example: In 2024, the canton of Geneva had a resource index of 140,0.
The mean of all cantons is 100, so the canton of Geneva is a financially strong canton.
