General Notes: *Median value gives the value for the "average" county for this metric, the 50th percentile of all counties reporting data. **The Population Estimates Program (PEP) includes two distinct kinds of estimates: postcensal and intercensal. Postcensal estimates adjust the population counts from previous censuses using administrative data. Intercensal estimates, on the other hand, use a formula to provide postecensal estimates between two decennial censuses. Intercensal estimates are considered superior to postcensal estimates by the Census Bureau. With each new release of annual estimates, all estimates are revised for all years back to the last decennial census. Hispanic origin is considered an ethnicity, not a race. Hispanics may be of any race.
