In this edition of Brookings Data Now: ALEC's influence on state legislatures; Kuwait a leading donor for Syrian refugees; private charitable development donations in the U.S. outpace official amounts; and county-level tax burdens compared.
The most common of the American Legislative Exchange Council's model bills in the sample were about immigration and the environment.
With an additional $183 million from Kuwait's independent charities, Kuwait is the largest non-Western donor in charitable giving for the Syrian crisis.
Official U.S. development assistance was $30 billion.
The overall U.S. average across counties is $3,400.
