* 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" city for this metric, the 50th percentile of all cities reporting data. Only 49 large cities are included in the report and the median is not reflective of the nation as a whole. ** Judicial and legal services covers all civil and criminal activities associated with courts, including prosecution and public defense. Data are a subset of Total Justice System Payrolls. Employment and payroll data are recorded in March since 1997. For years 1996 and earlier, the same data was recorded in October.
