Source: U.S. Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics, "Common Core of Data" and "Financial Statistics of Institutions of Higher Education," surveys and unpublished data. (This table was prepared January 2004.)

1 Data revised from previously published figures
2 Projected.
3 Includes expenditures of all Federal agencies
4 Federally supported student aid that goes to higher education institutions through students' tuition payments is shown under "All Other" rather than "Federal." Such payments would add substantial amounts and several percentage points to the Federal share.

NOTES:  Data above may vary from data reported in other surveys of education funding. Differences can be accounted for primarily by differences among the reports in any of the following: measures of funding used, e.g., budget authority vs. expenditures; the definition of education used; agencies and institutions reporting the data; and basis of dollars reported, e.g., current vs. constant dollars.

Because of rounding, detail does not add to totals.
