An analysis of the dollars received by each state from the federal government reveals that, for the most part, the states receiving the most money are the most populous. However, federal funding to some states is disproportionate to their size and their contributions. For instance, while California is the most populous state and receives the most federal dollars, it is not among the top ten states for federal spending per capita. Among states that receive the most dollars per capita is Kentucky, where total federal spending per capita was over $13,000 in 2010, including an allowance of nearly $1.5 billion more for prescription drug coverage than California (despite being one-ninth as populous as California).
