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

Example: In 2022, the canton of Aargau received CHF 717 per inhabitant from the fiscal equalization system.
The canton of Zug paid CHF 2594 per inhabitant into the fiscal equalization system in 2022.

Example: In 2022, the canton of Geneva had a resource index of 136.6. The mean of all cantons is 100, so the canton of Geneva is a financially strong canton.
