|Chained 2005 dollars (billions)||Percent of total|
NOTES: Federal transportation expenditures consist of Federal Government direct spending only, excluding grants to state and local governments. Details may not add to total and percents may not add to 100 due to rounding. To eliminate the effects of inflation over time, the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) converted current dollars to chained 2005 dollars. BTS used the Price Index for Government Consumption Expenditures and Gross Investment as the price deflator. The price index figures were obtained from the Bureau of Economic Analysis, available at http://www.bea.gov/national/nipaweb/SelectTable.asp?Selected=N#S3. Previous editions of this table used chained 2000 dollars, so this table is not comparable to previous editions.
