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. **Programs classified as other direct payments include two CFFR object categories. The first object category is direct payments for individuals, other than for retirement and disability. The second object category is direct payments, other than for individuals.
