Federal spending include federal expenditures or obligation for the following categories: grants, salaries and wages, procurement contracts, direct payments for individuals, and other direct payments, plus coverage/commitments in the form of direct loans, guaranteed or insured loans, and insurance. Dollar amounts (reported here in thousands of dollars) represent either actual expenditures or obligations.

Scope and Methodology:

Federal expenditures and obligations data were prepared by the Census Bureau. The following reporting systems and agencies are used as data sources: Federal Assistance Award Data System (FAADS), Federal Procurement Data System, Office of Personnel Management (OPM), Department of Defense (DOD), U.S. Postal Service, Internal Revenue Service, Public Health Service, and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. In addition to these, several other federal agencies are requested to provide data, usually for specific programs. Selected data also are obtained from the information on payments to state and local governments reported by federal agencies for the Census Bureau''s Federal Aid to States survey and report.

All grant awards were reported by state, county, and city of the initial recipient. For many grants, the initial recipient is the state government even though the grant monies are subsequently distributed to county, municipal, or other government and non-government organizations. These “pass-through” grants generally appear in the CFFR at the state capital city (and in the associated county). While an attempt is made in the CFFR to assign the dollar amounts for these pass-through programs to locations other than the state capital, it is not possible to do so in all cases.

The sum of all counties'' data may be less than state totals, because some distributions were not allocable to specific counties.
