I'm looking at a study and it's comparing these two: 現状(26年度)and 調査結果(30年度).

So it's comparing the "present condition" and the "research results" but what does the XX年度 mean?


年度 is the financial year (or maybe academic year if it's a research paper), so 2020年度 would the the financial year of 2020. So why do the numbers look weird? I think in your example the year is measured in eras so 30年度 would be the 30th year of the 平成 (Heisei) era. This ended with 平成31 in 2019.
