Principal Investigator(s): Sylla, Richard E.; Legler, John B.; Wallis, John
This data collection contains financial data on state government revenues and expenditures for 16 states during 1933-1937. There are separate files for different levels of aggregation: (1) revenue and expenditure aggregates (1-digit codes), (2) revenues and expenditures classified by major 20th-century categories (2-digit codes), (3) revenues and expenditures classified by minor categories that correspond to special features of 19th- and/or 20th-century governments (3-digit codes), and (4) revenues and expenditures classified by idiosyncratic categories which differ from state to state (4-digit categories). Parts 1 through 4 contain expenditure data. Parts 5 through 8 comprise revenue data. Part 9 contains codes for the categories of expenditures and revenues.
