This collection presents detailed data on school system finances at the school district level, including: (1) receipt by type and source, including distribution of federal funds by program, (2) expenditures by category, including current expenditures and capital outlay, (3) debt service, (4) cash and investment assets, and (5) attendance and membership data. Information collected for this project provides statistics to aid in implementation of the provisions of the National Defense Education Act, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, and the Education Amendments of 1974, as well as in determining educational needs and indicating how resources are utilized at the local level. The data for 1973-1974 were compiled by the Bureau of the Census, while earlier data (1969-1973, except 1972) were collected by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), ELSEGIS Program.
