Status: Unable to judge

Progress: No data collected in 2002.

Explanation: States were required under prior reauthorization to submit data triennially. States last reported in 2001 for 2000 performance. States were not required by statute to collect data for 2001 or 2002. From 2003 on, data will be collected annually with the 2000 data serving as baseline data.  
Frequency: Other.
Collection Period: - 2002
Data Available: October 2003
Validated By: No Formal Verification.

Limitations: States' methods of data collection vary, and the resulting data are not uniform.

Improvements: From 2003 on, the Department will collect data annually and use existing targets from 2000 as baseline information. Target and Performance Data tables have been amended since the last GPRA report. The Year column has been changed. The years listed in the amended table reflect the years of performance rather than the succeeding years when performance data were reported.
