Cells shown in green indicate that merit badges were earned during the year but the exact number is not currently known. The Grand Total is based off of official reports and research and includes all known and unknown yearly numbers.  Detailed annual numbers will be updated after being found and validated.  Grand Total is for merit badges earned through 2016.
                   
Cells with the year shadowed in orange indicate that merit badges were earned during the year but were earned prior/post the merit badge's official offering dates.  In some rare cases the BSA would introduce the merit badge early to a small group or event as a roll out or introduction of the "new badge".  More often badges earned after the official end date are usually a result of the BSA allowing Scouts who had already started work on the badge requirements prior to the end date to continue working and earning the badge, but ONLY if they had already started working on the old requirements. There are other special/unique situations that also account for these later year numbers.
