Los Angeles city Controller Ron Galperin unveiled a website Thursday that lists a variety of statistics city departments report annually to their office.

The data includes the number of people employed in a department, how many fires occurred in a year and other types of information tracked by city departments.

The website, at http://www.controlpanel.la/cafr/, also allows users to compare the latest figures with those of past years.

For example, the Animal Services department reported that 35,315 animals were adopted in Fiscal Year 2014, which begins July 2013 and ends June 2014. That is up from 2005 when 18,879 animals were adopted.

Meanwhile, the number of euthanized animals reported by the Animal Services Department was 15,028 in FY 2014, down from 2005 when 25,029 animals were killed.

The Transportation Department issued 2.6 million citations, and collected $161 million in parking fines.

The City Attorney’s office in FY 2014 handled 308 cases involving a criminal jury or went to trial, down from a recent high of 845 in 2009.

The Cultural Affairs Department reported 15,000 people enrolled in art classes, while the Harbor Department reported that 541,418 people were passengers on cruises, down from nearly 1.2 million in 2008.

The staffing size of the mayor’s office has fluctuated over the years, from 66 in 2005 to 195 in 2010. The mayor’s office reported 146 employees in FY 2014.

The controller’s office is required each year to collect this data — meant to be used as a way to measure the the city’s performance — as part of its preparation for an annual assessment of the city’s financial health known as the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report.

The latest report for FY 2014 was released today, along with the Community Financial Report, which offers a user-friendly summary of the information in the larger, 400-page report.

Some highlights from the financial reports include data on where the city gets its money to help pay for services and employee salaries.

The city brought in $5.9 billion from taxpayers and people who use city services last year, according to the report.

The major sources of that revenue include $1.2 billion from the city’s cut of property taxes, $1 billion from a combination of licenses, permits, fees and fines and $627.4 million from electric, gas and communications utility users taxes.

The report also shows the city’s liabilities totaled $30.1 billion, while its assets amounted to $53.3 billion.
