Notes: Data for 2000 and 2007 are revised. Federal expenditure includes direct federal spending, excluding grants to state and local governments. State and local expenditure includes outlays from all sources of funds including funds from federal grants, except railroad and pipeline modes. State and local expenditure for rail and pipeline modes include outlays that are funded by federal grants only. The part of expenditure that may be funded by other funding sources of state and local governments are not covered due to lack of data. Outlays for civilian transportation-related activities of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for construction, operation, and maintenance of channels, harbors, locks, and dams, and protection of navigation are not included for all years due to lack of data. The revisions for transportation expenditures include: 1) outlays for air transportation, 2) Federal water outlays for 1995 and 2007, 3) Federal expenditures on highway, transit and pipeline for 2000, 4) highway data for 2007, and 5) outlays for state and local transit and federal general support for 2007.
