* Data for more counties are available every five years when the Census of Governments is held (1992, 1997, 2002, 2007, 2012, etc.). The increase in data from small counties in those years typically means that the median value (midpoint of the data) is lower. Does not include municipal, town, special district, or independent school district employees within a county.
Years Available: 1992–1995, 1997–2016

General Notes: *Median value gives the value for the "average" county for this metric, the 50th percentile of all counties reporting data. All counties with a population of 100,000 or greater are included; smaller counties are sampled and therefore the same counties may not appear year-to-year.
