      The Honorable Michael P. Forbes
      House of Representatives

      Subject: Federal Assistance: Information on Federal Funds to Suffolk Countv. New York

      Dear Mr. Forbes:

      This letter presents information you requested on the level of federal assistance provided to
      Suffolk County, New York, as well as data on incomes and the distribution of population
      within the county. Your inquiry stems from the prospect of creating a new county that would
      encompass the rural portions of Eastern Long Island, New York, including parts of Suffolk
      County. As agreed with your office, we obtained program and funding information from the
      Consolidated Federal Funds Report (CFFR), which annually reports federal expenditures or
      obligations by county, and income and population distribution information from other Bureau
      of the Census reports.

      During fiscal year 1998, Suffolk County, New York, received more than $10.7 billion in federal
      assistance, according to the latest CFFR. That figure includes about $6 billion in direct
      expenditures or obligations, such as salaries and grants, and $4.7 billion in other federal
      assistance, such as guaranteed loans and insurance. Enclosure I summarizes the federal
      expenditures or obligations to Suffolk County from fiscal year 1996 through fiscal year 1998
      and provides a detailed listing of the federal programs that provided funding to the county in
      1998, together with the amount of funding they provided.

      In the 1990 Census, the median household income for Suffolk County, New York, was
      $49,128-well above the median household income of $22,737 for the nation as a whole that
      year. At this level, the county ranked 21” among the nation’s 3,141 counties or county
      equivalents (such as parishes in Louisiana). At that time, Suffolk County consisted of 136
      Census population areas, of which 106 were urban and 30 were rural.’ About 94 percent of
      Suffolk County’s more than 1.32 million residents were located in urban population areas.’

      ‘Population areas are Census-defined “places,” which include both legal entities (such as cities, towns, boroughs, and villages),
      referred to as “incorporated places,” and statistical entities (population centers without legally established boundaries), referred
      to as “Census designated places.” The term “urban” comprises all terr&oly, population, and housing in urbanized areas-
      areas consisting of one or more central places, such as a city, and the adjacent densely populated area that together include at
      least 50,000people-and places of 2,500 or more people outside urbanized areas. All territory, population, and housing in
      areas that the Census does not classify as urban are deemed to be “rural.”

      ?he 136 population areas encompass nearly 90 percent of the land area in Suffolk County and 97 percent of the county’s
      population.




                                                                GAWRCED-99-220R           Funding    to Suffolk    County,    New York
B-283000


The Bureau of the Census estimated that Suffolk County’s median household income
increased to $52,080 by 1995 and that its population increased to 1.37 million by July 1998-
the most recent dates for which these data have been estimated.3 Enclosure II lists the 136
Census population areas in Suffolk County identified in the 1990 Census, including their
designation as urban or rural, population, and median household income.



To obtain information for this report, we used the CFFR, which is compiled annually by the
Bureau of the Census and presents federal government expenditures or obligations in state,
county, and subcounty areas of the United States.4 All other data, including data on
population areas in Suffolk County, are from Census documents and electronic files in the
public domain. We discussed the federal program funding and the population and income
information with the chiefs of the Federal Programs Branch and Decennial Management
Division, respectively, within the Bureau of the Census, to ensure that we were accurately
characterizing the data. We also discussed this information with a senior planner in the
Suffolk County Department of Planning, who told us the county uses the Bureau’s data on
population and income for the county’s planning purposes. We did not independently verify
the data. Our work was performed in accordance with generally accepted government
auditing standards.

If you or your staff have any further questions about the information in this letter, please
contact me or Erin Lansburgh at (202) 512-5138. Mitchell B. Karpman was a key contributor

“The Census released the 1995median household income estimate in Feb. 1999,with a go-percent confidence intervaI ($49,971-
$54,178). The July 1998population estimate was released in Mar. 1999.
“The CFFR intentionally excludes such items as interest on federal government debt, travel expenses when not provided under
contract, and international payments and foreign aid. In general, the financial activity of all federal agencies is covered, with the
exception of agencies (such as the Central Intelligence Agency) that do not submit data to any of the federal reporting systems
that serve as sources of information for the CFFR.

Enclosure II


Note: Population areas are Census-defined “places,” which include both legal entities (such as cities, towns, boroughs, and
villages), referred to as “incorporated places,” and statistical entities (population centers without legally established boundaries),
referred to as “Census designated places.” The term “urban” comprises all territory, population, and housing in urbanized areas-
areas consisting of one or more central places, such as a city, and the adjacent densely populated area that together include at
least 50,000 people-and places of 2,500 or more people outside urbanized areas. All territory, population, and housing in areas
that the Census does not classify as urban are deemed to be “rural.”

“Population areas classified as “Census designated places” by the Bureau of the Census.

‘Population areas classified as Wages” by the Bureau of the Census.
