\1\Data for years prior to 1963 include expenditures for government fiscal years ending during that particular calendar year. Data for 1963 and later years are the aggregations of expenditures for government fiscal years which ended on June 30 of the stated year. General expenditures exclude expenditures of publicly owned utilities and liquor stores, and of insurance-trust activities. Intergovernmental payments between state and local governments are excluded. Payments to the federal government are included.
\2\Constant dollars based on a chain-price index, which uses the geometric mean of output weights of adjacent time periods compiled over a time series. Chain-price indexes reflect changes in prices, while implicit price deflators reflect both changes in prices and in the composition of output.
\3\Population of the United States including Armed Forces overseas. Includes Alaska and Hawaii beginning 1960.
\4\Resident population of the United States. Includes Alaska and Hawaii beginning 1958. Data for 1990 and later years include revisions based on the 2000 Census.
\5\Revised methodology.
\6\Based on 2000 Census controls.

NOTE: Gross domestic product data are adjusted by the GDP chained weight price deflator. Personal income data are adjusted by the personal consumption deflator. Some data have been revised from previously published figures.
