College Spending - Net Tuition Versus Subsidies by State

Can you guess which states have the highest and lowest subsidizes per student for their colleges?    I would have thought California would have spend the most but I was wrong.   I found  the data from Trends in College Spending 1999 to 2009 from the Delta Project   I got the data below out of figure 19 from their report.

Below is a table listing each state and giving the average amount of spending per student looking at Net tuition versus state subsidies.  This data is specific to public research universities and smaller schools will differ.
