  • Abstract

    This study is a compendium of data presented for regions, census divisions, states, counties, cities, Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas (SMSAs), and standard federal administrative regions in the United States in 1977. The data provide diverse information ranging from government activities to population estimates and characteristics to housing unit descriptors. Included is selected information on government revenues, property taxes, and debts, and expenditures on education, highways, public welfare, health and hospitals, and police and fire, as well as information on births, deaths, schooling, labor force, employment, family income, family characteristics, marriage, divorce, electoral votes, and housing characteristics.
