1 Local revenues include intermediate revenues from education agencies with fundraising capabilities that operate between the state and local government levels.
2 Current expenditures include instruction, instruction-related, support services, and other elementary/secondary current expenditures, but exclude expenditures on capital outlay, other programs, and interest on long-term debt.
3 U.S. totals include the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
4 Value affected by redistribution of reported values to correct for missing data items, and/or to distribute state direct support expenditures.
5 Both the District of Columbia and Hawaii have only one school district each; therefore, neither is comparable to other states.
NOTE: Data have been adjusted to fiscal year 2010 dollars to account for inflation using the Consumer Price Index (CPI), which is published by the U.S. Labor Department, Bureau of Labor Statistics. This price index measures the average change in inflation of a fixed market basket of goods and services purchased by consumers.
