*Data for each Council were run prior to that Council’s meeting: October 2021 on 8/31/2021, January 2022 on 1/4/2022, and May 2022 on 5/2/2022. 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 lower than the corresponding number of RPG applications in Table 1A.
