Supplementary notes

*As of August 20, 2021. The unusually high average for Biden is due to the large number of executive orders signed in his first weeks in office, and this number is expected to drop significantly in the coming years.

**While there is a difference between executive orders and proclamations issued by presidents, the Emancipation Proclamation was both a proclamation and an executive order.
