Targets and Performance Data Assessment of Progress Sources and Data Quality
Number of customers receiving technical assistance and number of products disseminated to customers (students, parents, teachers, counselors, administrators, and others) through America's Career Resource Network.
Year Actual Performance Performance Targets
Number of Customers Number of Products
Number of Customers Number of Products
25,910 8,540,106
20,000 800,000
39,404 5,573,349
30,000 8,000,000
20,000 8,527,748
20,000 8,527,748

Explanation: We provided a low estimate for the number of products to be disseminated to customers in the first year of the Career Resource Network because we thought only a few states would be able to fully implement their programs. However, more States than anticipated implemented programs and disseminated more products than expected.  
Additional Source Information: America's Career Resource Network Annual Performance Report.

Frequency: Semi-Annually.
Collection Period: 2003

Limitations: The number of products is a duplicated count; that is, it accounts for multiple copies of the same product being disseminated to one or more customers.
