The data processing techniques are discussed for the publicly released products consisting of images and source catalogs. We present accurate 70 and 160um source counts of the COSMOS field and find reasonable agreement with measurements in other fields and with model predictions. The previously reported counts for GOODS-North and the extragalactic First Look Survey are updated with the latest calibration, and counts are measured based on the large area SWIRE survey to constrain the bright source counts. We measure an extragalactic confusion noise level of σc=9.4±3.3mJy (q=5) for the MIPS 160um band based on the deep S-COSMOS data and report an updated confusion noise level of σc=0.35±0.15mJy (q=5) for the MIPS 70um band. Description: The MIPS S-COSMOS observations were carried out in four campaigns from 2006 January to 2008 January (during Cycle-2, in 2006 Jan 6-9 (AOR 21); Cycle-3a in 2007 Jan 1-13 (AOR 70); Cycle-3b in 2007 May 18-28 (AOR 61) and Cycle-3c in 2008 Jan 6-7 (AOR 5)). The project (Spitzer programs 20070 and 30143) represents over 450hr of MIPS observations. File Summary:
