Notes: 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. Local government outlays for highway are not included in 2007 due to lack of data. Thus, state and local expenditure data for 2007 is not comparable to the data for previous years. Federal air and general support expenditures for 2006 are revised. State and local highway outlays for 2006 are also revised.
