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. (Table prepared January 2006.)

Because of rounding, detail does not add to totals.
