DOI

The State Tax Revolt Data Set is a time-series, cross sectional data collection assembled from publicly available sources. It includes data on tax and expenditure limitation policies and selected covariates, observed annually for the 50 United States over the period of 1960-1992. Data were collected for variables both during the fiscal year and at the end of the fiscal year. Data collected at the end of the fiscal year include: (1) long-term and short-term debt of state and local governments, and (2) the total cash held by the state and its local governments. Data collected during the fiscal year include: (1) the total intergovernmental revenue from the federal government to the state and its local governments, (2) the total direct general revenue of the state and its local governments, (3) the total tax revenue of the state and its local governments, (4) total property tax revenue of the state and its local governments, (5) the total direct general expenditure of the state and its local governments, (6) the total direct general expenditure of the state and its local governments on "public welfare", (7) the total number of homeowners' associations in the state. Additional data were collected on: (1) the percentage of randomly sampled adults who said that the local property tax was "the worst tax--that is, the least fair", (2) the percentage of households in the state that were owner-occupied, the percentage of the state's population that the Census classified as "urban", (3) the estimated total personal income in the state, (4) the population of the state, (5) the estimated percentage of the state's population that was not White, (6) the estimated percentage of the state's population that was Black, (7) the total state and local spending on education during the fiscal year and, (8) the estimated number of union members as a percentage of the state's labor force. ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure.
