This documentation is for the provisional version 1a file of the National Public Education Financial Survey (NPEFS) for school year (SY) 2013-14, fiscal year 2014 (FY 14) conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics' (NCES) . It contains a brief description of the data collection, along with information required to understand and access the data file. The Common Core of Data (CCD) is a national statistical program that collects and compiles administrative data from state education agencies (SEAs) covering the universe of all public elementary and secondary schools and school districts in the United States. The NPEFS survey is one of six annual surveys that comprise the CCD. The other five surveys are the Public Elementary/Secondary School Universe Survey, the Local Education Agency Universe Survey, the State Nonfiscal Survey of Public Elementary/Secondary Education, the School District Finance Survey (F-33), and the School-Level Finance Survey (SLFS). The principal users of CCD data are the federal government, the education research community, state and local government officials (including school boards and LEA administrators), and the general public. Congress authorizes NCES to collect these data through the Education Sciences Reform Act of 2002 (20 U.S.C. ยง 9543). NCES and the Economic Reimbursable Surveys Division (ERD) of the U.S. Census Bureau collaborate to collect public education finance data, with the Census Bureau acting as the primary collection agent for the NPEFS survey. The NPEFS survey provides state-level aggregate finance data for revenues and expenditures for public elementary and secondary education. The NPEFS data are useful to (1) chief officers of state education agencies (SEAs), (2) policymakers in the executive and legislative branches of federal and state governments, (3) education policy and public policy researchers, (4) the press, and (5) citizens interested in information about education finance.
