* Data for each Council were run prior to that Council's meeting: October 2017 on 8/18/2017, January 2018 on 12/15/2017, May 2018 on 4/17/2018. Only applications that are normally percentiled were included. As applications in response to RFAs, and a few other applications, are not normally percentiled, the number of applications in Table II is usually less than the corresponding number of RPG applications in Table IA.
