Every fifth year a complete census of state and local governmental units in the United States is undertaken. This collection contains 1982 finance data for revenue, expenditure, debt, and cash and security holdings for state and local governments. Revenue is given by source--generally taxes, intergovernmental revenue, and service charges. Expenditures are shown both by function, such as education, transportation, and public welfare, and by type, including intergovernmental, current operation, and capital outlay. Also provided are financial data on employment-retiree systems and on utilities operated by state and local governments. There are four files in this collection. File A provides detailed statistics for each state and local government, File B has the data for local governmental units aggregated by county, and File C has national and state summaries for the following types of governments: (1) State and Local Government total, (2) State Government, (3) Local Government, (4) Local Governments in SMSAs, (5) Counties, (6) Municipalities, (7) Townships, (8) School Districts, and (9) Special Districts. In addition, a Name and Address File provides the name, address, and corresponding government identification code for all of the local government units.
