The fed. gov't. supports numerous data programs that assemble & analyze quantitative measures of the nation's environmental conditions & trends (known as indicators). Most of these data programs are housed in fed. agencies, & provide data used by decision makers from the private sector & by gov't.

The federal government spends billions of dollars every year on domestic food assistance (FA) programs. The U.S. Dept. of Agriculture administers most of these programs and monitors the prevalence of food insecurity -- that is, the percentage of U.S. households that were unable to afford enough food sometime during the year. Other federal agencies also fund FA programs; however, comprehensive and consolidated information on the multiple programs is not readily available. This report examines: (1) the prevalence of food insecurity in the U.S.; (2) spending on FA programs; (3) what is known abou

This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. The federal govżt. accounts for about 9% of the total investment in K-12 education, with state and local sources covering the rest. There have been a number of efforts to catalogue and determine how much is spent on federal education programs. However, because education programs are administered by agencies throughout the federal govżt., and there is no standard definition of a federal education program, there currently is no single source that can provide an accounting of federal education programs. This report answered the fo

Following the World Trade Center (WTC) attack, the Congress appropriated $8 billion to FEMA for response and recovery activities. The Dept. of Health and Human Serv.

In total, $369 million has been appropriated for the WTC health programs. There have been problems that these programs have had in ensuring the availability of services for all responders. This report examines lessons from the WTC health programs that could guide future programs. This repo
