Federal Outlays, 1976-1980: [United States] (ICPSR 6029)

Principal Investigator(s): Office of Economic Opportunity

Summary:

This data collection contains detailed information on fiscal outlays of the United States federal government to counties and cities for the years 1976-1980. These data reflect the distribution of federal dollar outlays by program, influence activity, and geography and, as such, provide a guide for planning and budgeting researchers. There are four types of files for each fiscal year and for a transition quarter in 1976. (1) The county and state files cover each county and state in the United States. There is one record for each appropriation within each program within each county. The files include appropriations, programs, type of assistance, type of transaction, outlays in dollars, beneficiaries, and state control of federal outlays. (2) The city files cover each city in the United States with a population of 25,000 or more. There is one record for each appropriation within each program within each city. The files include the same variables as the county and state files. (3) The geographic table files provide data by state, county, and city codes, geographic names, rural/urban codes, and Appalachian and Mexican border indicators. They also identify congressional districts and give the total population figures and national ranking by population. (4) The program appropriations files supply data by agency codes and names, function codes and names, program identifiers, and national dollar outlays by function and agency.
