Data Series:

    * 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.

    Years Available: 1993–2012

    General Notes: *Median value gives the value for the "average" county for this metric, the 50th percentile of all counties reporting data. Only large counties are included in the report and the median is not reflective of the nation as a whole. **Police protection is the function of enforcing the law, and preserving order and traffic safety and apprehending those who violate the law, whether these activities are performed by a police department, a sheriff's department, or a special police force maintained by an agency whose primary responsibility is outside the justice system but that has a police force to perform these activities in its specialized area. Private security police are outside the scope of the survey. Employment and payroll data are recorded in March since 1997. For years 1996 and earlier, the same data was recorded in October.
