Description
  • Abstract

    This collection represents a merger of the 1977-1978 school district finance data and the 1977-1978 school district universe information. The data may contain records that are not included in both datasets, especially since in many states the finance data are for a sample of school districts. If one dataset contains records that the other does not contain, then that portion of the merged record is blank. The collection presents detailed financial data on school system finances at the school district level, including: (1) receipt by type and source, including distribution of federal funds by program, (2) expenditures by category, including current expenditures and capital outlay, (3) debt service, (4) cash and investment assets, and (5) attendance and membership data.
