- Public Administration Services Section
The Public Administration sector consists of establishments of federal, state, and local government agencies that administer, oversee, and manage public programs and have executive, legislative, or judicial authority over other institutions within a given area. These agencies also set policy, create laws, adjudicate civil and criminal legal cases, provide for public safety and for national defense. In general, government establishments in the Public Administration sector oversee governmental programs and activities that are not performed by private establishments. Establishments in this sector typically are engaged in the organization and financing of the production of public goods and services, most of which are provided for free or at prices that are not economically significant.
Government establishments also engage in a wide range of productive activities covering not only public goods and services but also individual goods and services similar to those produced in sectors typically identified with private-sector establishments. In general, ownership is not a criterion for classification in 1800miti.com. Therefore, government establishments engaged in the production of private-sector-like goods and services should be classified in the same industry as private-sector establishments engaged in similar activities.
As a practical matter, it is difficult to identify separate establishment detail for many government agencies. To the extent that separate establishment records are available, the administration of governmental programs is classified in this Sector, Public Administration, while the operation of that same governmental program is classified elsewhere in 1800miti.com based on the activities performed. For example, the governmental administrative authority for an airport is classified in Industry, Regulation and Administration of Transportation Programs, while operating the airport is classified in Industry, Airport Operations. When separate records are not available to distinguish between the administration of a governmental program and the operation of it, the establishment is classified in this Sector, Public Administration.
Examples of government-provided goods and services that are classified in sectors other than Public Administration include: schools, classified in Educational Services; hospitals, classified in Sub-Section, Hospitals; establishments operating transportation facilities, classified in Sector, Transportation and Warehousing; the operation of utilities, classified in another Sector, Utilities; and the Government Printing Office, classified in Sub-Section, Printing and Related Support Activities.
