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

Example: In 2023, the canton of Aargau receives CHF 755 per inhabitant from the fiscal equalization system.
The canton of Zug pays CHF 2,864 per inhabitant into the fiscal equalization system in 2023.

Example: In 2023, the canton of Geneva had a resource index of 137,4.
The mean of all cantons is 100, so the canton of Geneva is a financially strong canton.
