Reports on Government

The following government reports were selected by GovSpot.com editors as meaningful or noteworthy:



Discontent
The Pew Research Center released a report in 2007 showing that a majority of the American public is discontent with the government. The President, Congress and the Supreme Court have lost favor with the people since the last poll in January. People are less pleased that the Democrats are in control of Congress than they were in January, but still half of the public (50 percent) claims they are happy about the Democratic majority.



Homeland Security
The General Accounting Office submitted a report entitled Homeland Security: A Framework for Addressing the Nation's Efforts (Sept. 2000, PDF) to the Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs that outlines federal efforts to prevent terrorism. The report focuses on the types of existing threats and how the government can improve security.



Pentagon Papers
The Pentagon Papers, a Pentagon report detailing American involvement in Vietnam, were originally published in the New York Times in 1971. The National Security Archive, a nongovernmental organization located at George Washington University, has made documents relating to the Pentagon Papers Case available online. Included are audiotape transcripts and the text of the Supreme Court decision that allowed the publication of the Pentagon Papers.






Economic Forecast
The Federal Reserve's Beige Book is printed eight times a year with analysis of the American economy. The report summarizes economic outlooks by Federal Reserve District.




State Taxes
How much money does your state collect in taxes? The Census Bureau's State Government Tax Collections site lets you investigate your state's revenues. The report found that the states collected a combined total of $540 billion in taxes in 2000.



e-Government Services
The federal government is becoming one of the largest retailers on the Internet. Last year, the government sold $3.6 billion in products and property online, almost a billion dollars more than the sales of Amazon.com. Read more about government shopping at Dot-gov Goes Retail (May 2001), a report by the Pew Internet Project.



Digital Publications
The Government Printing Office is responsible for disseminating most government documents. The agency issued this report, Electronic Dissemination of Government Publications (March 2001, PDF), which explores the issues of publishing information online. The study concluded that electronic dissemination reduces the cost of publishing and makes the information more widely accessible.



National Security
In an independent and bipartisan study, the U.S. Commission on National Security conducted extensive research on the U.S. national security structure. The final report, Road Map for National Security: Imperative for Change (PDF) (1/31/01), emphasizes the dangers that exist even after the Cold War. The U.S. government must adapt to changes wrought by techological advances and globalization in order to secure its prominence in the world, according to the report.



Presidential Pardons
Franklin Roosevelt granted the most presidential pardons, while Bill Clinton granted the most infamous pardon. The Jurist Legal Education Network pulled together this site of information about Presidential Pardons. The site explains the pardon procedure, lists notable pardons and offers expert commentary on the subject.



U.S. Budget
View past presidents' budgets submitted to Congress each fiscal year dating back to 1996.



Evaluating the JFK Assassination
One of the most famous government reports is that of the Warren Commission, which investigated the death of President John F. Kennedy. The Warren Report offers the complete text and selected transcripts online, along with annotations. This site is a project of students at Bergen County Technical Schools in New Jersey.



State Report Cards
There was no grade inflation on the states' 2001 report cards. Only three states received an A average in Grading the States 2001, a report released by The Maxwell School of Syracuse University and Governing magazine. The report measures how the states manage the systems that deliver public services.
