The Economic and Budget Outlook: Fiscal Years 1993-1997 - (CB ANNRPT)

This volume is one in a series of reports on the state of the economy and the budget that the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) issues periodically. It satisfies the requirements of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974 to submit an annual report to the Committees on the Budget with respect to fiscal policy and to provide five-year baseline projections of the federal budget. It also satisfies the requirement of the Budget Enforcement Act of 1990 to provide a sequestration preview report regarding the status of the discretionary spending limits, pay-as-you-go requirements, and maximum deficit amounts. In accordance with CBO's mandate to provide objective and impartial analysis, the report contains no recommendations.

U.S. Bureau of the Census Annual Survey of Manufactures - (CN ASM) Fiscal Years 1993-1997

The Bureau of the Census conducts the annual survey of manufactures (ASM) in each of the four years between the Census of Manufactures. The ASM is a probability-based sample of approximately 56,000 establishments and collects the same industry statistics as the census of manufactures. In addition, the ASM sample are requested to supply information on assets, capital expenditures, retirements, depreciation, rental payments, supplemental labor costs, cost of purchased services, and foreign content of materials consumed. Except for supplemental labor costs, the extra ASM items are collected only in census years.

U.S. Bureau of the Census Statistical Abstract - (CN STATAB)

The Statistical Abstract of the United States published since 1878, is the standard summary of statistics on the social, political, and economic organization of the United States. It is designed to serve as a convenient volume for statistical reference and as a guide to other statistical publications and sources. The latter function is served by the introductory text to each section, the source note appearing below each table. Additional source information may be found in Appendix I of the printed document, which comprises the Guide to Sources of Statistics, the Guide to State Statistical Abstracts and the Guide to Foreign Statistical Abstracts.

This volume includes a selection of data from many statistical publications, both government and private. It primarily includes construction industry statistics so that the Bureau of the Census can evaluate the NESEDB as a vehicle for its complete Abstract using the BROWSE software. Publications cited as sources usually contain additional statistical detail and more comprehensive discussions of definitions and concepts than can be presented here. Data not available in publications issued by the contributing agency but obtained from unpublished records are identified in the source notes as "unpublished data". More information on the subjects covered in the tables so noted may be obtained from the source.

Decennial Census Summary, 1990 - (CN USPOP)

Information from the 1909 census is derived either from questions asked of the entire population or from questions asked of only a sample of the population. Those questions asked about every person and housing unit are called 100-percent or short-form questions. The others are called sample or long-form questions. Those households receiving the short-form questionnaire were asked only the 100-percent questions, and those receiving the long-form questionnaire were asked both the sample questions and the 100-percent questions.

Historical Tables from the Budget of the U.S. Government - (MB BUDGET)

The historical tables are designed to provide budget users with a wide range of data on Federal Government finances. In many cases, the data cover all years from 1940 to the presidential policy estimates through 1997.

Bureau of Economic Analysis Current Business Statistics - (EA BUSTAT)

The Business Statistics program contains data for over 1900 series that are published monthly by the Bureau of Economic Analysis in the S (or "blue") pages of the SURVEY OF CURRENT BUSINESS. The data, collected by numerous private sector and federal government sources, provide an overall view of the business environment within the United States.

Business Cycle Indicators - (EA CYCIND)

If past timing relationships hold true, the behavior of the various cyclical indicators can provide valuable information about the current and future state of the economy. A key analytical feature of the business cycle indicators system is the trio of composite indexes--leading, coincident, and lagging--that summarize the activity of each group. Each composite index is compiled from a balanced selection of the best cyclical indicators of its timing category. Combining the indicators into an index tends to cancel out some of the erratic movements of the individual series while reinforcing their common cyclical behavior. The economic time series in this data file are those shown in the "Business Cycle Indicators" section of the SURVEY. They cover a wide range of economic processes, such as employment, income, production, investment, sales, orders, inventories, profits, money supply, credit, interest rates, prices, productivity, international transactions, and international comparisons. In addition to the series classified as cyclical indicators, they include other series that are important for analyzing current and future business conditions.

Pollution Abatement Expenditures - (EA EXPPAC)

Annual estimates of capital expenditures and operating costs for pollution abatement and control (PAC) are prepared within the framework of the national economic accounts. These PAC estimates are in current and constant dollars, with selected fixed-weighted price indices. The data are classified by column according to type of PAC (e.g., spending for air PAC, water PAC.) and by row according to expenditure category (e.g., sector of the economy--consumers, business, and government). The preparation of the PAC estimates by the Bureau of Economic Analysis began in the 1970's. The most recent estimates, for the 1988 data year, were published in the November 1990 Survey of Current Business.

Gross State Product (EA GSP)

Gross state product is the market value of the goods and services produced by labor and property located in a state. It is the state counterpart of the nation's gross domestic product.

The gross state product estimates for 1977-89 update and extend the estimates that were published in the May 1988 issue of the Survey of Current Business, the monthly journal of the Bureau of Economic Analysis. The newly released estimates for 1977-89 reflect new source data and methodology. Moreover, these estimates are consistent with the revised estimates of gross product by industry for the nation that were published in the January 1991 and April 1991 issues of the Survey of Current Business.

Input-Output Accounts of the U. S. Economy - (EA IO-TBL)

This data is from the 1986 annual input-output (I-O) accounts as published in "Input-Output Accounts of the U.S. Economy, 1986", SURVEY OF CURRENT BUSINESS 71 (February 1991). I-O data are presented in five tables. They are the use of commodities by industries and the make of commodities by industries as published in the SURVEY, and the commodity-by-industry direct requirements derived from the use table. The commodity-by-commodity total requirements, and industry-by-commodity total requirements tables are also available.

National Income and Product Accounts - (EA NIPA)

The national income and product accounts (NIPA's) show the production and distribution of goods and services in the United States. The detailed tables that comprise the NIPA's can be viewed as components and elaborations of five principal accounts: (1) national income and product, (2) personal income and outlays, (3) government transactions, (4) foreign transactions, and (5) saving and investment. In addition, tables provide quantity and price measures, price expressed as indexes and percent changes in indexes. Implicit price deflators (the ratios of estimates in current dollars to the corresponding estimates in base-year dollars) are also shown for the major aggregates. Official quarterly estimates of the NIPA's begin in 1946, annual estimates in 1929. However, the latest comprehensive revision is currently available only back to 1959.

U.S. Regional Economic Projections to 2040 - (EA REGPRO)

This database presents projections to the year 2040 of economic activity and population for the Nation and the States. Projections are presented for (1) population in three age groups, (2) personal income, classified by major income component, and (3) employment and earnings - each of which is presented for 57 industrial groups. Projections are shown for 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010, 2020, and 2040; historical data are shown for 1973, 1979, 1983, and 1988.

Drawing upon data collected from 300 counties for 1988, it addresses such questions as: How many persons in the United States were convicted of a felony in the year? What sentences did felons convicted of a violent crime receive? What was the likelihood of a prison sentence for a person convicted of a felony? How many persons did juries convict of a felony?

Female Victims of Violent Crime - (JS FMVVC)

The 1984 Victims of Crime Act established a Crime Victims Fund with monies obtained from Federal offenders in the form of fines, financial penalties, forfeited bail bonds, and literary profits.

Violent crimes, particularly rape and violence against intimates, are vitally important to understand and to prevent. The debilitating effects of these crimes, most of which are against women, are dramatic and long-lasting for the victim and for society. Yet the very nature of these crimes and the consequences of them mean that victims are often unwilling or even unable to report them to the police or to a National Crime Survey (NCS) interviewer.

Jail Inmates 1990 - (JS JAIL)

This Bureau of Justice Statistics Bulletin presents findings from the Annual Survey of Jails, conducted on June 29, 1990.

Women in Prison - (JS WMNPSN)

Across the Nation the number of women in prison has grown at a faster rate than that of men. In a year-to-year comparison, the percentage of women is now the highest it has ever been, beginning with the first annual collection of prison statistics in 1926.

This report describes the characteristics of women in State prisons in 1986. It provides a detailed profile of their criminal histories, prior use of drugs, self-reported backgrounds of physical and sexual abuse, and the custodial situations of their young children.

Capital Stocks Data Base - (BA CSDB)

A major input into the production of goods and services is capital; equipment and structures. Capital assets provide productive services over a long period of time. Thus, capital used in production is usually a combination of assets purchased in the current period and assets purchased in previous years. The capital stock is the total of all capital assets and capital stocks may be used to analyze trends in capital expenditures by industry and to compare industries for their relative capital intensiveness.
