Abstract

The United States' Federal Government spends large sums of money annually on various departmental and agency programmes: the spatial pattern of this spending has a major impact on the country's geography of economic and social well-being. To understand that geography requires analysis of the political processes which determine the spatial pattern of Federal allocations. Correlation analyses reported here indicate the extent of the power of members of party groups in the various committees of Congress.-Author
