Note: ERS' Federal Funds series is discontinued. The underlying data are no longer available.
The data are from the Census Bureau's Consolidated Federal Funds Reports on Federal expenditures and obligations for grants, salaries and wages, procurements, direct payments, direct loans, guaranteed loans, and insurance obtained from Federal Government agencies. ERS screens the data for each Federal program for accuracy at the county level and then presents the data by function and type of program for each county and State. See the complete data documentation for details.
Each file contains Federal outlays by program for each county in the State. County population is also included so that per capita spending can be calculated. Summary of the data for the United States and a ZIP file for all States are also available.
