NOTES: Data may not add to total and percentages may not add to 100 because of independent rounding. To eliminate the effects of inflation over time, the Bureau of Transportation Statistics converted current dollars to chained 2000 dollars.

Federal transportation expenditures consist of outlays of the federal government including not only direct spending but also grants made to state and local governments. To avoid double counting, state and local transportation expenditures include their outlays from all sources of funds except federal grants received. State and local data are reported together because disaggregated federal grants data are not available. Pipeline data only include federal-level expenditures because state and local data are not available.
