Part of a study of the state-federal fiscal structure in developmental disabilities, the report presents detailed state-by-state expenditure data for FY 1977-84.

Six subsections in this first part present (1) comparisons of institutional and community services expenditures for the states and D.C.; (2) comparisons of mental retardation/developmental disabilities (MR/DD) expenditures on selected scales of state and national funding capacity; (3) revenue sources for MR/DD institutional services; (4) revenue sources for MR/DD community services (5) comparative utilization of federal intermediate care facilities for the mentally retarded (IFC/MR) reimbursements in institutional and community settings; and (6) daily expenditure and population trends in institutional services. Part 2, the bulk of the report, presents a 10-page chart series for each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Each series is accompanied by technical notes explaining state data sources and service system characteristics. Part 3 presents a series of charts depicting nationwide fiscal trends and service statistics in income maintenance and special education programs. (CL)
