National Park System--Summary: 1990 to 2006

Added By Infochimps

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 1225):

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

This dataset consists of a table of 42 rows and 18 columns.

For year ending September 30, except as noted. (986 represents $986,000,000) Includes data for five areas in Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands, one area in American Samoa, and one area in Guam


  1. Financial data are those associated
    with the National Park System. Certain other functions of the National
    Park Service (principally the activities absorbed from the former
    Heritage Conservation and Recreation Service in 1981) are excluded.
  2. Includes funds carried over from prior years.
  3. For calendar year. Includes other areas, not shown separately
  4. Through 1990, combined data for North Cascades National Park and two adjacent
    National Recreation Areas are included in National Parks total.
  5. Includes military areas.
  6. Federal land only, as of Dec. 31. Federal land acreages, in
    addition to National Park Service administered lands, also include
    lands within national park system area boundaries but under the
    administration of other agencies. Year-to-year changes in the federal
    lands figures include changes in the acreages of these other lands
    and hence often differ from “net acquisition.”
  7. The decrease in the 2006 land total reflects acreage by the Bureau of Land
    Management and not by the National Park Service.
