      Notes

      In Metopio, a topic is a well-defined metric, indicator, or concept. Every topic is assigned a short key which is used throughout Metopio - for instance, INC for median household income.

      Data from external sources are updated as they are released. Many data sources provide updates annually, so topics from those datasets are updated annually in Metopio.
