Annual Survey of School System Finances First Look

Press Release Number CB22-TPS.85

OCT. 4, 2022 — Today the U.S. Census Bureau released an early look at data from the Annual Survey of School System Finances. The data provide initial insight into spending per public school pupil (pre-K through 12th grade), as well as revenue and other school system spending details in 38 states and the District of Columbia.

The tables in the preliminary release present fiscal year (FY) 2021 school system finance data. The accompanying visualization compares these stats to data in prior years to provide timely information about how they may have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the early release, only a subset of geographic areas is included.

These data are preliminary and are subject to change by the final release. We plan to release the final FY 2021 Annual Survey of School System Finances data tables and files — with finance data for all 50 states and the District of Columbia — in May 2023.
