Abstract: For each governmental unit surveyed in the data collection, finance data are provided for revenues, expenditures, indebtedness and debt transactions, and cash and security holdings. Revenue data are listed by source, and expenditures are listed by function and type. Functions include education, administration, transit, and public welfare. Expenditure types include intergovernmental transactions, current operations, and capital outlays. Data also are provided for employee retirement systems operated by governments and for utilities operated by state and local governments.

SOURCE: official records of state and local governments, and self-enumerated forms mailed to governmental units

UNIVERSE: State and local governments in the 50 states and the District of Columbia, including counties, municipalities, townships, school districts, and special districts.

SAMPLE: Governmental units canvassed in the finance phase of the 1987 Census of Governments. Governments created since 1987 that met the population or financial minimums of certainty units also were included.

NOTE: There are seven ''record types'' in Part 1, Finance Sample Units (formerly File A), each corresponding to a type of governmental unit, including one for the federal government. All seven record types have the same technical characteristics. Each record in Part 1 contains data for one governmental unit. Part 2, Governmental Finance Estimates (formerly File B), supplies national and state area estimates by level and type of government. It contains 52 groups of eight records each, with one group for each geographic area (the United States, the 50 states, and the District of Columbia). Each group contains one record for each of the following types and levels of government: (1) state and local government total, (2) state total, (3) local total, (4) counties, (5) municipalities, (6) townships, (7) school districts, and (8) special districts.
