State & Local Finance Data Query System (SLF-DQS)
This system allows flexible presentation of data from the Census of Governments State and Local Finance series. That series contains detailed revenue, expenditure and debt variables for the United States, each of the 50 states, and the District of Columbia for 1977-2010. The data are available by type of government: state, local, state and local totals, and local government detail. All data presented are state aggregates of finance data for the selected level of government. Users can view the data along different dimensions, in real or nominal dollars, and on a per capita or fraction of personal income, general revenues or total expenditures basis. This tool is useful for comparative, single state, or time series analysis.
To Use: Click on "Create a Table!" to begin making tables. On each tab, select desired options and click on "Next >>". If you need help, click on the ? box buttons. If you experience any problems or have comments or suggestions, please email email@example.com
Caution: Queries involving a large combination of states, years and variables may cause the DQS to time out. This problem is exacerbated if a number of states and years and variables are chosen. For instance, selecting all states, all years, and one series should be fine, while selecting all states, all years, and multiple series will likely cause a time-out. Exact limits will vary depending on server conditions. To obtain the entire set of State and Local Government Finance data, please visit http://www.census.gov/govs/estimate/index.html
