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. **Amounts paid to other governments as fiscal aid in the form of shared revenues and grants-in-aid; as reimbursements for performance of general government activities; and for specific services for the paying government, or in lieu of taxes. Excludes amounts paid to other governments for purchase of commodities, property, or utility services, any tax imposed and paid as such, and employer contributions for social insurance, e.g., contributions to the Federal Government for Old Age, Survivors, Disability, and Health Insurance for county employees.
