*Data for each Council were run prior to that Council's meeting: May 2019 on 4/23/2019, October 2019 on 8/14/2019, and January 2020 on 12/23/2019. 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 2 is usually less than the corresponding number of RPG applications in Table IA.
