OTHER NOTES:    (1) Report all employment data for both institutional and other corrections here. (2) Exercise care when recording Federal or state construction expenditures for corrections reported under an administrative unit (e.g., Director's Office, Division of Planning). Construction outlays for noninstitutional activities are generally quite small; thus, such amounts should often be classified at Correctional Institutions, code 04, instead of Other Corrections. (3) Refer to dependent agency checklists for large city and county government institutions included in this function.
