Cheryl H. Lee, Mara Beleacov, and Nancy Higgins


This report is part of a continuing series designed to  provide information on the structure, function, employ- ment, and finances of the United States’ nearly 90,000  state and local governments. The U.S. Census Bureau  produces data quinquennially as part of the Census of  Governments in years ending in “2” and “7.” Additional  statistics are produced annually and quarterly during  the intercensal period from data collected from a series  of surveys. These surveys provide a wealth of informa- tion on state and local government employment and  financial activity.
