General Notes: Data for more counties are typically available in years of the Census of Governments, such as 1997, 2002, and 2007. As a result, the median value is typically lower for those years due to the influx of smaller governments. Some data series from this source may also see an increase in counties in 2000, leading to a similar drop in the median value. *Median value gives the value for the "average" county for this metric, the 50th percentile of all counties reporting data. **Revenue from contributions required of employees for financing county-administered employee-retirement systems, earnings on investments held for such systems, and receipts of state payments for employees covered by county systems. Excludes any contributions by a county, either as employer contributions or for general financial support to an employee-retirement system. Tax proceeds, donations, and any forms of revenue other than those enumerated above are classified as general revenue rather than employee-retirement revenue, even though such amounts may be received specifically for employee-retirement purposes.
