THE BUDGET DOCUMENTS
Budget of the United States Government, Fiscal Year 2000

the President’s 2000 budget proposals. In addition, the Budget includes the Nation’s second comprehensive Government-wide Performance Plan.
Analytical Perspectives, Budget of the United States Government, Fiscal Year 2000 contains analyses that are designed to highlight specified subject areas or provide other significant presentations
of budget data that place the budget in perspective.
The Analytical Perspectives volume includes economic and accounting analyses; information on Federal receipts and collections; analyses

debt; the Budget Enforcement Act preview report; current services
estimates; and other technical presentations. It also includes information on the budget system and concepts and a listing of the Federal
programs by agency and account.
Historical Tables, Budget of the United States Government,
Fiscal Year 2000 provides data on budget receipts, outlays, surpluses or deficits, Federal debt, and Federal employment covering
an extended time period—in most cases beginning in fiscal year 1940
or earlier and ending in fiscal year 2004. These are much longer
time periods than those covered by similar tables in other budget
documents. As much as possible, the data in this volume and all
other historical data in the budget documents have been made consistent with the concepts and presentation used in the 2000 Budget,
so the data series are comparable over time.

includes for each agency: the proposed text of appropriations language, budget schedules for each account, new legislative proposals,
explanations of the work to be performed and the funds needed,
and proposed general provisions applicable to the appropriations of

entire agencies or group of agencies. Information is also provided
on certain activities whose outlays are not part of the budget totals.
