PUBLIC DEBT
INTRODUCTION
Scope of this report.—The statistics in this report relate to the gross and net
debt of the National Government, the 48 States and the District of Columbia,
counties, cities, towns, villages, school districts, townships, drainage districts,
and all other civil divisions having power to incur debt.
Fiscal year.—The statistics for the National Government are for the year
which ended June 30, 1923, and those for the governments of the States, counties, cities, and all other civil divisions having power to incur debt, are for the
fiscal year which ended in the calendar year 1922.
Terms employed.—In order that the statistics contained in the tables of this
report may be properly interpreted, the classification employed in their c o m pilation and the significance of the terms used in the tabulation of the data are
pointed out in the paragraphs which follow.
Gross debt.—The gross debt is the total debt of every character which a
civil division is under obligation to pay, and includes, (1) funded or fixed debt,
(2) special assessment loans, and (3) revenue loans, outstanding warrants, and
other current debt.
Net debt.—The net debt is the gross debt described above, less the assets
held in sinking funds for the retirement of such debt.
Funded or fixed debt.—Among the most important classes of debt to be reported a& funded or fixed are those locally known as general bonds, serial bonds,
corporation stock, certificates, serial notes, and mortgages. Under this head
are included, also, indebtedness to public trust funds not evidenced by formal
bonds or certificates of indebtedness and certain other forms of debt not c o n sidered current debt.
Special assessment loans.—Under this head are included bonds, certificates,
and other long-term or short-term obligations outstanding which have been
issued or incurred with the distinct understanding that they are to be paid
wholly or in part from the proceeds of special assessments apportioned according to the assumed benefits to the property affected by the improvements thereby
secured.
All other debt.—Included under the term " A l l other d e b t " are (1) all interest bearing short-term obligations other than the so-called serial bonds, among
which are those popularly known as revenue bonds, revenue loans, anticipation
tax loans and tax warrants, temporary loans, and similar obligations; (2) outstanding warrants, orders, and audits; and (3) all other current debt outstanding
at the close of the year.
Total and per capita public indebtedness.—Table I, which follows, presents
a summary of the total and per capita debt of the National Government less
cash in the Treasury; and the total and per capita debt less sinking fund assets
of the governments of the 48 States, and of counties, incorporated places, and
all other civil divisions for 1922, 1912, 1902, and 1890. The debt of the District of Columbia, which is coterminous with the city of Washington, is included in that of "Incorporated places."
The totals of this table show the aggregate of all indebtedness resting upon
the people of continental United States on account of all the governments exercising jurisdiction within that area.

WEALTH, PUBLIC DEBT, AND TAXATION : 1922

The per capita amounts shown in the tables of this report are based on exact
totals. I n some cases, therefore, they will differ slightly f r o m calculations that
m a y be m a d e b y using as bases the amounts shown in the table, which are only
approximately exact because of adjustment to the nearest thousand.
T h e population figures used in calculating per capita amounts for States represent, f o r each State, the estimated population at the middle of the fiscal year
which ended in the calendar year 1922, except in cases of 3 of the States—
Vermont, Mississippi, and Nevada. T h e y represent the estimated population
of 21 States on January 1, 1922, 1 on M a r c h 1, 8 on April 1, 8 on June 1, and 7
on July 1. T h e Bureau of the Census has made no estimates of population f o r
Vermont, Mississippi, and Nevada, the population of which decreased f r o m 1910
t o 1920; for each of these States the population used in c o m p u t i n g per capita
amounts was that shown b y the census of January 1, 1920.
In computing the per capita amounts for incorporated places and for counties,
the dates as of which the estimates were made were as follows: (1) For incorporated places having a population of over 30,000, the estimated population
at the middle of the fiscal year, except in case of decrease of population f r o m
1910 to 1920 in which case the population on January 1, 1920, was used; ( 2 )
f o r incorporated places having a population f r o m 8,000 to 30,000 and f o r counties
the estimated population on July 1, 1922, except in case of decrease of p o p u l a tion f r o m 1910 to 1920 in which case the population on January 1, 1920, was
used; and (3) for incorporated places having a population of less than 8,000
the population as enumerated on January 1, 1920, was used.
T h e data relative t o the indebtedness of the States and other civil divisions
are presented in considerable detail in the general tables of this report, and are
briefly discussed in the text for those tables. T h e national debt is shown only
in T a b l e I .

WEALTH, PUBLIC DEBT, AND TAXATION : 1922

Net debt of the National Government.—The very great increase in the net
indebtedness of the National Government f r o m 1913 to 1923 is only in part
comparable t o the increases shown f o r the States and f o r other civil divisions,
the m a j o r portion having been incurred on account of war purposes. In one
particular, however, the National Government and the State and local governments were under a c o m m o n necessity, in that war prices affected all of them.
M a n y of the local governments, even when curtailing their regular services and
improvements, as measured in units of service and of improvement, were nevertheless compelled t o increase abnormally their indebtedness as measured in
dollars having a diminished purchasing power as compared with those of 1912
and the former years during which the debts reported f o r 1912 were contracted.
T h e obligations of foreign countries t o the United States constitute a very
important offset to the national debt, as the acts authorizing t h e m p r o v i d e
that receipts on their account shall be used in p a y m e n t of bonds of the United
States. T h e amount of the claims of the United States against foreign countries
on account of loans t o them during the World War was placed at $11,800,010,245
on N o v e m b e r 15, 1923; and of this total Great Britain owed $4,600,000,000, as
agreed upon b y the two Governments. A t such time as all the foreign loans of
this character shall be reduced to exact amounts and payments shall begin under
agreements negotiated relative thereto which provide for the ultimate extinction
of the debts, it m a y be proper to construe these offsets as in the nature of sinking fund assets in the computation of the net debt of the National G o v e r n m e n t .
Per capita net debt of the National Government.—The per capita indebtedness of the Nation as shown in the table is based upon the population of the 48
States and the District of Columbia, as is usual in expressing an average participation of individuals in features of the Federal finances. I t should be r e m e m bered, however, that the outlying possessions of the United States contribute,
though in widely varying ways and degrees, to the revenues of the Federal G o v ernment, and thus contribute to the funds provided f o r the p a y m e n t of debt.
If the populations of those possessions could be properly weighted as to their
degree of contribution as compared with that of the population of continental
United States, it would be possible to compute per capitas f o r the Nation
slightly less than those shown in the table.
Increase in net indebtedness.—The total debt less the sinking fund assets of
the^National Government, State governments, and all other civil divisions in
continental United States in 1922 amounted to $30,845,626,000. This is an
increase of $25,995,166,000, or 535.9 per cent, over the amount reported for 1912.
During the period f r o m 1902 to 1912 the net debt increased $2,015,968,000, or
71.1 per cent; f r o m 1890 to 1902 it increased $845,379,000, or 42.5 per cent.
T h e net debt of the National Government increased $21,127,322,000, or
2,054.1 per cent, f r o m June 30, 1913 to June 30, 1923; $59,107,000, or 6.1 per
cent, f r o m June 30, 1902 to June 30, 1913; and $117,544,000, or 13.8 per cent,
f r o m June 30, 1891 to June 30, 1902.
The net debt of States, counties, incorporated places, and all other civil divisions is presented in Table II, b y Stafes, together with the increase f o r 1912 to
1922, 1902 t o 1912, and 1890 to 1902, the per capita net debt for 1922, 1912,1902,
and 1890, and the per cents of the total net debt represented b y the net debts of
the States, counties, and all other civil divisions, 1922.
Some of the very considerable increases in the debts of States during the 10-year
period were because of bonds issued to finance the States' payments on account
of the soldiers' bonus, as an extraordinary p a y m e n t in large a m o u n t could not be
immediately financed through the usual processes of taxation.

TABLE 1
Public indebtedness other than Federal.—Table 1 shows the net indebtedness of the States, counties, and all other civil divisions and the aggregate of
such debts. The data here presented include the total burden of public indebtedness other than that on account of the obligations of the Federal Government.
They show that the larger amounts of indebtedness have been assumed b y the
smaller geographical units, such as cities and school districts; the units of g o v ernment which supply to the local communities the larger share of the services
requisite to the protection of person and property, guarding against conditions
deleterious to health, and furnishing educational and recreational facilities.
Of
the aggregate of the indebtedness in 1922, as shown in the table, 10.8 per cent
rested upon the States, 14.6 per cent upon the counties, and 74.6 per cent upon
the other civil divisions, which are listed on pages 5 and 6 of this report, the
cities, towns, villages, and school districts being the principal units.
Per capita public indebtedness other than Federal.—The last t w o columns of
T a b l e 1 show for 1922 and 1912, b y States, the per capita of the aggregate net
indebtedness on account of States, counties, and all other civil divisions.
The
total of such indebtedness increased 127.4 per cent during the period f r o m 1912
t o 1922. Oregon had the largest per capita, $170.69, and K e n t u c k y the smallest,
$20.68. Each of the 48 States is shown to have increased the per capita of the
aggregate net indebtedness resting upon its population; the only decrease being
shown for the District of Columbia, the territory of which coincides with the city
of Washington, and which is here classed as a municipality. T h e data, both
total nnd per capita, for counties and all other civil divisions, shown in Table 1
by States, are shown in Table 3 by counties.

TABLE 2
State indebtedness.—The data shown in Table 2 represent the net debt, or
gross debt less sinking fund assets, of the State governments.
All States reported such debt in 1922; while in 1912 two States—Pennsylvania and West
Virginia—had no such debt, the former at that time having sinking fund assets
in excess of its gross debt, and the latter having no debt contracted by it, though
subject to an adjustment of its share of the debt of Virginia outstanding at the
time of the organization of the State of West Virginia f r o m territory f o r m e r l y
constituting a part of Virginia, which adjustment was made in 1919.
States which reduced their net debt.—It is worthy of note that f r o m 1912 to
1922 eight States reduced their net debt—Massachusetts, Connecticut, Wisconsin, Kansas, Virginia, Georgia, Oklahoma, and Arizona—although the net
debt of the 48 States, as a whole, increased 170.4 per cent during that period.
T h e largest decrease, $2,555,000, was made b y the State of Massachusetts,
which had in 1912 the second largest debt of any State and in 1922 the third
largest, N e w Y o r k having a larger debt in both years, and California in 1922,
TABLE 3
Gross debt less sinking fund assets of counties.—Table 3 presents, by States,
for each of the counties of the 47 States in which the counties are empowered to
incur debt, the amounts due at the close of their fiscal years in 1922 and 1912,
with the per capita amounts in those years. The totals for the States are the
same as shown in Table 1. The total for the several counties vary widely because of difference in population, but the per capita amounts serve as fair indexes
of the relative debt burdens resting upon the individual. The per capita indebtedness of counties measures only in a very general way the methods followed
in financing the counties' affairs, a small amount indicating that the county is
living within its income to a greater extent than the county with a large per
capita debt. This may be due to generous tax levies and e c o n o m y in administration, or to the habit of careful determination of what the county can and
can not afford in the way of construction costs for such improvements as are
usually financed b y bond issues.
TABLE 4
Gross debt, and funded or fixed debt less sinking fund assets.—Table 4
presents the gross debt of States, counties, incorporated places, and specified
civil divisions under three h e a d s — " F u n d e d or fixed," "Special assessment l o a n s , "
and " A l l other." T h e significance of these terms as here used is stated on page 1
of this report. The debt, total and per capita, as shown in the last two columns
of the table is a more accurate measure of indebtedness than is shown in Table 1
under the heading " G r o s s debt less sinking fund assets," for the reason that
special assessment loans are provided for b y levies of special assessments to be
collected f r o m property owners in advance of the maturity of the loans, and the
amounts tabulated as " A l l o t h e r " are to a large extent, if not entirely, offset
b y taxes levied but not collected and b y cash in the general fund of the treasury.
The assets of sinking funds accumulated to meet obligations known as special
assessment loans, where they could be identified as such, were excluded f r o m
the calculation.
The funded or fixed debt of States, counties, incorporated places, and specified
civil divisions constituted 86 per cent of their total indebtedness; the special
assessment loans, 7.4 per cent, and all other debts 6.6 per cent.
Distributed
according to classes of government, 11.3 per cent of the gross debt was that of
the States, 13.5 per cent that of counties, 56.9 per cent that of incorporated




8

WEALTH, PUBLIC DEBT, AND TAXATION : 1922

places, and 18.3 per cent that of specified civil divisions.
The corresponding
per cents for funded and fixed debt less sinking fund assets were, for States,
12.1, counties, 14.8, incorporated places, 54.4, and specified civil divisions, 18.7,
showing that the incorporated places held sinking funds in larger amounts in
proportion to their funded or fixed debt than were held b y States, counties, or
the specified civil divisions.
N o indebtedness was reported for the counties of R h o d e Island, nor for specified civil divisions in Alabama, Delaware, and R h o d e Island, as these are merely
geographic divisions without taxing powers. T h e small amounts of indebtedness reported b y the counties of Connecticut, N e w Hampshire, and Vermont are
in a general way proportionate t o the functions of counties in those States as
compared with the more extensive functions of counties in most of the States.
In 4 of the States—Indiana, Montana, Nevada, and West Virginia—the per
capita debt of the counties was greater than that of the State or its incorporated
places; while in the remaining 44 States the per capita debt of incorporated
places exceeded that of the State and of the counties.
T w o States—Kansas and Nebraska—reported no funded or fixed d e b t ; and
1 S t a t e — A r i z o n a — w h i l e reporting indebtedness of this character, at the same
i i m e reported sinking fund assets in excess of such debt. N o special assessment
loans w ere reported for any of the States, but the table shows that the counties
o f 12 States had outstanding obligations of that character to the amount of
$97,121,000. Such obligations were reported b y the incorporated places of all
States except Arkansas, Delaware, Maine, N e w Hampshire, R h o d e Island, and
Delaware,
Vermont ; and b y the specified civil divisions in 23 of the 48 States.
Maine, New Hampshire, R h o d e Island, and Vermont reported no special assessment loans outstanding against any of the divisions of government.
T h e highest and lowest per capita indebtedness as reported wTere as follows:
F o r States, Oregon $48.12 and I o w a $0.08; f o r counties, Arizona $53.46 and V e r m o n t $0.38; and for incorporated places, N e w Y o r k $137.23 and Arkansas $4.35.
TABLE 5
Gross debt, and funded or fixed debt less sinking fund assets of States.—
T h e amounts of indebtedness shown in Table 5 are the same as are shown f o r
States in Table 4. As none of the States reported special assessment loans, no
c o l u m n is provided in Table 5 f o r obligations of that character. Funded or
fi x e d debt constituted 95.1 per cent of the total debt of States. A part of the
f unded or fixed debt is made up of the State's indebtedness t o its permanent
funds, such as the State school fund derived f r o m the sale of school lands set
apart for the support of public education. In a number of States these funds
have been used by the State for purposes other than schools, the State paying
i nterest to the fund at an established rate in lieu of income that would have been
derived from the assets of the fund if kept intact and invested in i n c o m e producing properties or securities. In many instances the funds hold no formal
b o n d o r note of the State, but the obligations are none the less binding and are,
therefore, in eluded as a part of the State's indebtedness.
TABLE 6
Gross debt, and .funded or fixed debt less sinking fund assets of counties.—
T h e a m o u n t s of indebtedness shown on the lines for States in Table 6 are the
s a m e as those shown on the lines for the counties of each State in Table 4,
e xcept that special assessment loans, which were reported b y only 12 States,
have been combined with the indebtedness classed as " A l l o t h e r . "
Because
of the ranging functions of counties in the different States, comparison of their




PUBLIC DEBT

per capita indebtedness does not lead t o accurate information as t o their relative
methods of employing c o u n t y credit in financing public undertakings f o r which
the county is responsible. Comparisons of such per capita amounts of counties
within a given State yield such information in a general w a y , b u t in the absence
of data as t o purposes for which the debts were incurred, the years in which
the borrowings were made, the interest rates, and the year of maturity of the
bonds and other obligations, no clear conclusions can be drawn as to the relative
efficiency of the counties of a State in the supervision of such public functions
as are required of them under the State's constitution and laws. One really
vital matter to be considered in this connection, the effect of the indebtedness
upon tax levies, can be studied b y calculating the annual charge on account of
interest at an assumed average rate, and on account of sinking fund accumulations
or payments of serial bonds on an assumed average life of the obligations.
The
assessed valuations of counties, necessary for this study, are shown in the bureau's
report entitled "Assessed valuations and tax l e v i e s " issued as a c o m p o n e n t
part of the reports on wealth, public debt, and taxation.
TABLE 7
Gross debt, and funded or fixed debt less sinking fund assets of Incorporated places.—The amounts shown in Table 7 as aggregates of the indebtedness
of the incorporated places in each State are the same as are shown in Table 4 .
T h e presentation of the data b y population groups within each State, as here
shown, is desirable because of the fact that the larger cities as a rule report
indebtedness in ]arger per capita amounts than d o the smaller cities.
The
arrangement of Table 7 is designed to measure this tendency in the aggregate.
As compared with the average per capita indebtedness of all incorporated places
$59.65, as shown in the last column of the table, the indebtedness of places of
over 30,000 inhabitants was 36.2 per cent greater, that of places of f r o m 8,000 t o
30,000 inhabitants was 43.3 per cent less, that of places of f r o m 2,500 t o 8,000
inhabitants was 48.6 per cent less, and that of places less than 2,500 inhabitants
was 61.3 per cent less. Similar computations for the several States would
yield widely varying results.
TABLE 8
Gross debt, and funded or fixed debt less sinking fund assets of specified
civil divisions.—Table 8 presents, b y States, the indebtedness of the divisions
of government other than States, counties, and incorporated places.
The
divisions reporting indebtedness in each of the States are listed on pages 5 and 6.
In Table 8 the indebtedness is shown separately for six classes of local governments,
school districts, townships, drainage districts, irrigation districts, levee districts,
and road districts, and the total indebtedness of districts of other classes is
shown in a single item after the title " A l l other districts."
I t is possible that in some instances the special districts here set up as having
power to incur debt should have been reported as geographic divisions in the
administration of functions of the county or some other civil division, in w h i c h
case the indebtedness would have been reported as that of the county or o t h e r
civil division. It is believed, however, that such instances are rare, if indeed
there are any, and in any event the error of classification would not affect the
figures which represent the total debt resting upon the people of the county.
