City Governments - Revenue for Largest US Cities: 2004

Added By Infochimps

The dataset is composed of revenue for the largest cities in the United States. Some revenue included are general sales, public utilities, parks and recreation, and employment retirement revenue. The cities are ranked by estimated resident population as of July 1. Data reflect inclusion of fiscal activity of dependent school systems where applicable.


The Statistical Abstract files are distributed by the US Census Department as Microsoft Excel files. These files have data mixed with notes and references, multiple tables per sheet, and, worst of all, the table headers are not easily matched to their rows and columns.

A few files had extraneous characters in the title. These were corrected to be consistent. A few files have a sheet of crufty gibberish in the first slot. The sheet order was shuffled but no data were changed.

The tables that were changed (this is table 443):

0166 0257 0362 0429 0445 0446 0459 0461 0462 0464 0465 0466 0467
0469 0479 0480 0481 0482 0483 0484 0485 0486 0487 0559 0628 0629
