BEA released an experimental set of state-level statistics describing the transactions of state and local government defined benefit pension plans. The set of statistics includes 32 series describing the current receipts, current expenditures, and cash flow of the pension plans as well as their assets and benefit entitlements. The annual transactions for 2000 to 2018 are consistently measured on an accrual basis, using a common discount rate, and benchmarked to the 2017 Census of Governments. Estimates for 2019 and revisions for 2015-2018 will be released on September 24, 2020.
