This study examines police expenditures for selected cities
for an extended period of time. The data set contains one variable per
year for each of the following items: total general expenditures,
expenditure for police protection, deflated general expenditures
adjusted for inflation, deflated police expenditures adjusted for
inflation, residential population, land area, patterns of population
change during the study period, government identification, and implicit
price deflators of goods and services.
One or more data files in this study are set up in a non-standard format, such as card image format. Users
may need help converting these files before they can be used for analysis.
The public-use data files in this collection are available for access by the general public.
Access does not require affiliation with an ICPSR member institution.
