Census Bureau Releases 2017 Census of Governments Data and Individual State Descriptions Report

CB19-TPS.21

April 25, 2019 — The U.S. Census Bureau is releasing two products: the official count of state and local governments for the 2017 Census of Governments and the Individual State Descriptions report.

The 2017 Census of Governments release consists of data from the Organization component that reflects an enumeration of active, in-scope governments in the United States. These counts are presented by government type, state, population-size groups, function and school systems.

The Individual State Descriptions report for the 2017 Census of Governments provides information about the legal organization of state and local governments. There is a separate summary for each state and the District of Columbia. The summaries cover authorized county, municipal, township, school district and special district governments, as well as noteworthy state and local dependent governments.

The Census of Governments is a three-phased program that collects state and local government data every five years as a part of the Census of Governments in years ending in “2” and “7.” Between censuses, comparable employment and financial activity data are produced from intercensal quarterly and annual sample surveys
