* 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: 1993–2013, 2015

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. **Excludes utilities and county-operated liquor stores. Full-time equivalent (FTE) employment is a statistical measure that estimates the total workforce accounting for the less than full-time employment of part-time employees. Data are from March (for 1996 and prior, the data was collected in October). For more information, visit the BJS website. This measure is given as a point of comparison for the justice employment in these counties.
