FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT TRENDS ARE DISCUSSED IN THE INTRODUCTION WITH ACCOMPANYING TABLES AND CHARTS, FOLLOWED BY A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF SURVEY METHODOLOGY, DATA SOURCES, AND LIMITATIONS.

SURVEY DATA REVEALED THAT, PROPORTIONATELY, AT ALL LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT, THE FASTEST GROWING CRIMINAL JUSTICE SECTORS FROM FY 1971 TO FY 1975 WERE 'OTHER CRIMINAL JUSTICE' AND PUBLIC DEFENSE. HOWEVER, THE DOLLAR AMOUNTS EXPENDED BY BOTH OF THESE SECTORS IN FY 1975 WERE SMALL IN COMPARISON TO OTHER SECTORS AND CONSTITUTED LESS THAN 4 PERCENT OF TOTAL CRIMINAL JUSTICE EXPENDITURE. THE DOMINANT SECTORS, THOSE AREAS IN WHICH GOVERNMENT EXPENDED THE GREATEST NUMBER OF DOLLARS AND REQUIRED THE GREATEST NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES, WERE POLICE PROTECTION FIRST AND CORRECTIONS SECOND.
