Explanation: FY 2004 data will establish the baseline. For (a), the FY 2005 target is 5% more than the baseline and the FY 2006 target is 3% more than the 2005 target. For (b), the target for FY 2005 is 10% more than the baseline and the target for FY 2006 is 7% more than the 2005 target. Prior performance indicators represented selected data elements collected by WEEA Center in Boston only. Data from several WEEA projects has been delayed because much of the information is being collected as part of the project evaluation. Some projects only had summer participants which accounts for the delay in providing information.
