No. of Counties reflects the number of counties in an area, while the total count only counts a county once and doesn't double count the county if it is in more than area.

Multi-state areas are counted in the nonattainment report until all state areas have been redesignated.

The 1997 PM-2.5 Philadelphia-Wilmington, PA-NJ-DE nonattainment area, county and population are included in the Moderate classification grouping. NJ was classified as Subpart 1 at redesignation (effective September 4, 2013, 78 FR 54396), while PA and DE were classified as Moderate at redesignation. DE was redesignated effective September 4, 2014 79 FR 45350, and PA was redesignated effective April 21, 2015 80 FR 22112 .
