The state has released its 2013 spending numbers: the state is doling out $2800 per person in Mahoning County for mainly Medicaid and education. Mahoning ranks 29th out of the 88 counties. Per-capita spending in Columbiana and Trumbull counties is $2400; the more-populated and very-rural counties top the list. Here's a link to the full 2013 spending report.
