The OEIS is supported by the many generous donors to the OEIS Foundation.



Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

%C 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.
