Summary of Transportation Revenues and Expenditures from Own Funds and User Coverage, Fiscal Year
(Millions of current and chained 2012 dollars)
State and local expenditure includes outlays from all sources of funds excluding federal grants.
Federal expenditure includes direct federal spending and grants 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.
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.
This edition is not comparable to previous editions due to a change in chained dollars. Chained 2009 dollars estimates for earlier years can be found in the 2018 edition of NTS.
