COMMENTS

Two states do not have counties so a(2)=27 for the 27 divisions of Alaska (whose names each include "Borough" or "Census Area") and a(18)=64 for the 64 parishes of Louisiana. No term includes the District of Columbia (Washington, D.C.) nor the independent cities found in Maryland (1), Missouri (1), Nevada (1) and Virginia (40). The part of Yellowstone National Park in Montana is not part of any county and is also not counted here. Sum_{n=1..50} a(n) = 3097. This World Almanac source indicates that its sources include the U.S. Bureau of the Census and the U.S. Department of Commerce.

EXAMPLE

Alphabetically, Alabama is the first state of the United States of America so a(1)=67 because that state has 67 counties. Wyoming, the 50th state alphabetically, has a(50)=23 counties.
