* The Criminal Justice Expenditure and Employment Extracts Program reports data for 68 large counties. Blank values indicate counties for which the CJEEP collects data, but no data was available in this particular category for this county for whatever reason. See other CJEEP data series for related data on these counties. The small number of counties causes the median value to be highly sensitive to changes in the number of counties that reported data in a given year; use caution when interpreting median time trends.
