* The Criminal Justice Expenditure and Employment Extracts Program reports data for 49 large cities. Blank values indicate cities for which the CJEEP collects data, but no data was available in this particular category for this city for whatever reason. See other CJEEP data series for related data on these counties. The small number of cities causes the median value to be highly sensitive to changes in the number of cities that reported data in a given year; use caution when interpreting median time trends.

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. **Direct current includes salaries, wages, fees, commissions, and the purchase of supplies, materials, and contractual services. Corrections is that function of government involving the confinement and rehabilitation of adults and juveniles convicted of offenses against the law and the confinement of persons suspected of a crime and awaiting adjudication. Includes all Direct Current expenditures on Police Protection, Justice and Legal, and Corrections. Data are from the fiscal year, the end date of which differs from county to county.
