1 Unadjusted (or "current") dollars have not been adjusted to compensate for inflation.
2 Constant dollars based on the Consumer Price Index (CPI), prepared by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor, adjusted to a school-year basis. The CPI does not account for differences in inflation rates from state to state.
NOTE: Current expenditures include instruction, support services, food services, and enterprise operations. Expenditures for state administration are excluded in all years except 1969-70 and 1979-80. Beginning in 1989-90, extensive changes were made in the data collection procedures.
