1 Local revenues include intermediate revenues from education agencies with fundraising capabilities that operate between the state and local government levels.
2 U.S. totals include the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
3 Both the District of Columbia and Hawaii have only one school district each; therefore, neither is comparable to other states. Local revenues in Hawaii consist almost entirely of student fees and charges for services, such as food services, summer school, and student activities.
4 Reported state revenue data are revenues received from the central government of the jurisdiction.
NOTE: Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding.
