Census of Government

Perhaps you thought the Census Bureau only tracked people and housing. Or perhaps you were also familiar with the Economic Census of businesses. But did you know that there was an Annual Survey of State and Local Government Employment and Payroll? The 2005 data on the number of government civilian employees and their gross payrolls is now available.

The 2004 report showed most full-time equivalent employees worked in education. Other employment categories include corrections, financial administration, fire protection, health, hospitals, judicial and legal, police protection, public welfare, streets and highways. For details, go to http://www.census.gov/govs/www/apes.html.
