This documentation is for the revised file (Version 1b) of the National Center for Education Statistics' (NCES) Common Core of Data (CCD) National Public Education Financial Survey (NPEFS) for school year 2008-2009, fiscal year 2009 (FY 09). It contains a brief description of the data collection along with information required to understand and access the data file. The Governments Division of the U.S. Census Bureau conducts the NPEFS data collection on behalf of NCES. The Education Sciences Reform Act of 2002, section 151(b) (3), 20 U.S.C. 9541, authorizes NCES to collect these data.

State education agencies (SEAs) in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and four U.S. Island Areas (American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the U.S. Virgin Islands) report state aggregate finance data to the NPEFS program.
