(A) Historical expenditures prior to 1929 available upon request.
(B) Prior to FY2005, total operating expenditures varied slightly from table to table. Data were taken directly from Yale financial reports and reflected specific year-end accounting adjustments. However, when expenditures were broken down by category or school, those adjustments may not have been accounted for, but they did correctly reflect expenditures from a rational disbursement perspective.
For FY2005 and thereafter, total operating expenditures throughout the tables do agree with the summary reports and reflect year-end accounting adjustments, so data should not vary among the tables. Beginning in FY2000, expenditures are reported net of certain scholarships and fellowships.
