Limitations: NWP sites measure effectiveness using different instruments, so data are difficult to aggregate.
 
Explanation: The FY 2004 target was to establish a baseline. However, no data were available for FY 2003-2004. The FY 2005 target is to establish a baseline. The target for FY 2006 is the baseline plus 1 percent.
