* Metro area data are not available for the 1995-96 period. National median values from 2003 to 2006 may be affected by a decrease in the number of Metro Areas included in the survey. This median is only reflective of the data available and not necessarily the entire nation.

General Notes: *Median value gives the value for the "average" metro area for this metric, the 50th percentile of the small subset of Metro Areas included in the survey. It should not be seen as nationally representative. **Life, endowment, annuities, and other personal insurance includes premiums for whole life and term insurance; endowments; income and other life insurance; mortgage guarantee insurance; mortgage life insurance; premiums for personal liability, accident and disability, and other nonhealth insurance other than for homes and vehicles. The terms consumer unit, family, and household are often used interchangeably for convenience. However, the proper technical term for the purposes of the Consumer Expenditure Survey is consumer unit, which includes family households, financially independent individuals (even if they live with other households), and two or more persons living together who use their incomes to make joint expenditure decisions. A ! symbol indicates that data are likely to have large sampling errors.
