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. **Schools and other educational facilities and services. Elementary and SecondaryEducation includes mainly county-operated elementary and secondary schools and other educational institutions (other than higher education), and intergovernmental expenditures for education, payments to private institutions, and special educational programs. Revenue and expenditure for school lunch services, athletic events, and other commercial or auxiliary services are reported on a gross basis. Institutions of Higher Education include universities, colleges, and junior and/ or community colleges operated by the county.
