Understanding the Flow of Federal Funds Data

For many years, the Northeast-Midwest Institute supplied contributing states and Northeast-Midwest Coalition members with detailed, state-specific data on the flow of federal funds. That full report included state-specific amounts and comparative statistics for every federal program included in the Consolidated Federal Funds Report, which the Census Bureau discontinued after 2010. The Northeast-Midwest Institute also produced an annual series of tables that show federal spending and taxation patterns by state and region. What follows is an explanation of the data, data sources, and calculations used for those tables.
