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. **All long-term credit obligations of the county and its agencies whether backed by the county’s full-faith and credit or nonguaranteed, and all interest-bearing short-term credit obligations. Includes judgments, mortgages, and revenue bonds, as well as general obligation bonds, notes, and interest-bearing warrants. Excludes noninterest bearing short-term obligations, inter-fund obligations, amounts owed in a trust or agency capacity, advances and contingent loans from other governments, and rights of individual’s to benefits from county employee retirement funds.
