Census of Governments Series RSS

Investigator(s): U.S. Bureau of the Census

The Census of Governments, a complete census of United States government units, is conducted at five-year intervals by the Census Bureau. Detailed financial and employment statistics are collected on the federal government and over 80,000 states, counties, municipalities, townships, and school and special districts in the United States. Two important components of the Census of Governments series are the Employment Statistics and Finance Statistics data collections. The Employment Statistics files contain employment and payroll figures by function. Full- and part-time employment and payrolls for various governmental functions are provided. The Finance Statistics files report finance data on revenues, expenditures, indebtedness and debt transactions, and cash and security holdings.
