*Data for each Council were run prior to that Council's meeting: January 2020 on 12/23/2019, May 2020 on 4/16/2020, and October 2020 on 8/21/2020. 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.
