State and local expenditure includes outlays from all sources of funds excluding federal transfers.

Federal expenditure includes direct federal spending and transfers to state and local governments.

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.  

User coverage ratio is a measure of the extent to which federal outlays on transportation programs are covered by receipt from transportation- related taxes and charges that are earmarked for transportation programs. The coverage ratios are based on the current dollar amounts.

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.

Chained 2012 dollars estimates for earlier years can be found in the 2022 edition of NTS.
