Federal regulations, 20 U.S. Code, Section 1061 (2), allow for certain exceptions to the founding date. Federal, state, and local governments revenue includes appropriations, grants, contracts, and independent operations. Totals include persons of other racial/ethnic groups not separately identified. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding.
