There are six "record types" in File A, each corresponding to a type of governmental unit. All six record types have the same technical characteristics. Each record in File A contains data for one governmental unit. In contrast, File C contains summary data in 52 groups of eight records each, with one group per state. Each group contains one record for each of the following types and levels of government: (1) state and local government total, (2) state total, (3) local total, (4) counties, (5) municipalities, (6) townships, (7) school districts, and (8) special districts. The record layout for File C is identical to that of File A.

All school district governments in 31 states were surveyed, along with a sample of those in the 19 remaining states. A sample of approximately 14,000 other local governmental units was also included. All state governments and the District of Columbia are included.
