Public Social Welfare Expenditures, Fiscal Year 1989\1

Social welfare expenditures are the cash benefits, services, and administrative costs of public programs that directly benefit individuals and families. These expenditures have been relatively stable since the early 1980s. Social welfare spending per capita was $3,783 in 1989, which was 6.9% higher than in 1988. More than 1/2 of all government spending was for social welfare programs during 1989. Some 49% of federal and 60% of state and local money went for these purposes. Nearly 1/3 of federal spending on social welfare came from trust funds, while the equivalent figure for states and localties was about 10%. Government at all levels spent $241.7 billion on health and medical care in 1989, which was 10.8% higher than during the previous year. The Consumer Price Index as a whole rose 4.8% between 1988 and 1989, while its medical care component rose 7.7%. Spending for health and medical care represented 4.7% of gross national product in 1989. \1
