*Data for each Council were run prior to that Council's meeting: October 2020 on 8/21/2020, January 2021 on 12/23/2020, and May 2021 on 4/29/2021. 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 1A.
