AbstractLike many other states Alabama was greatly harmed by the Great Depression. As a result of the economic woes facing Alabama the state government adopted many strategies aimed at improving the situation faced by the state as a whole. Some include changes in the strategies adopted by the two Governors of the 1930s, the effects of the Depression on one of the states key industries, changes to taxation, as well as the repeal of Prohibition and how it was connected to the Depression in Alabama. Additionally, there were many different variables that influenced state behavior, taxation in particular, in Alabama and other states. State per capita tax revenue more generally for the country as a whole will be analyzed through a regression analysis in order to determine whether state per capita income, per capita federal grants, return from crops, and other variables are statistically significant in explaining variation in per capita taxation.
