For the annual figures, data is based on counts of individuals on HCBS or Intellectual/Developmental Disability (IDD) or Physically Disabled (PD) waiting list in December of the fiscal year. For the quarterly figures, the data is based on the number of individuals on a waiting list in the last month of the quarter.
In some cases, quarterly data has been annualized to provide a better comparison to prior fiscal years. Generally, measures that use percentages have been annualized. This prevents distortions in the quarterly data that may occur because of smaller populations sizes. Measures that show the numbers of incidents, activities or individuals reflect actual numbers for the quarter. This allows users to see progress from one quarter to the next towards identified goals.
