Notes:

Numbers may not add to totals due to rounding.

Total government expenditure is the sum of state and local expenditure including federal transfers and federal expenditures, less transfers.

Government transportation revenues consist of money collected by governments from transportation user charges and taxes to finance transportation programs. The following types of receipts are excluded: 1) revenues collected from users of the transportation system that are directed to the general fund and used for nontransportation purposes, 2) nontransportation general fund revenues that are used to finance transportation programs and 3) proceeds from borrowing.  

Data deflated using separate price indexes for federal transportation (NIPA Table 3.15.4 Line 19) and state & local transportation (NIPA Table 3.15.4 Line 31).

All chained-dollar measures are calculated based on the Fisher Ideal quantity index formula.

Chained 2009 dollars estimates for earlier years can be found in the 2018 edition of NTS.

Total government revenues are for own source revenue only.

BTS is in the process of reviewing and revising 2017 railroad and transit expenditures to account for new budget line items. All effected tables will be updated shortly. 

Revisions from 2015 to 2017 are based on changes in the deflators.
