The Employment Summary Statistics dataset is part of the Census of Governments, a complete enumeration of United States governmental units undertaken every five years. This data collection contains the October, 1982 employment and payroll figures for the governments. Data for full- and part-time employment and payrolls are shown for such functions as administration, education, corrections, police, fire protection, utilities, health, public welfare, parks, libraries, sanitation, highways, and transit. Data are also provided for labor-management relations, employee organizations, employee benefits, and unemployment, health, and life insurance. 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 SMSA's, (5) Counties, (6) Municipalities, (7) Townships, (8) School Districts, and (9) Special Districts. In addition, the Name and Address File contains name, address, and corresponding government identification code for all of the local governmental units.
