General Notes: "Prepaid debit cards" are defined as cards that are loaded with funds and branded with a payment network logo. Funds can be added to the cards as needed, and they can be used wherever the payment network brand is accepted. A "-" symbol indicates the estimated value would round to zero. A "*" flags projected metro areas that changed geographic boundaries between 2013 and 2015 or do not meet the official OMB metro area definition - interpret with caution.
