III. COMPLAINT JURISDICTIONS

As in most years, the majority of complaints OCR received in FY 2006 alleged discrimination on the basis of disability (52 percent). Overall, the focus of complaints filed over the last several years has remained fairly consistent, with similar percentages of complaint receipts in each of the subject-matter jurisdictional areas.

Figures 2 through 8 below show the number and percentage of complaint receipts by jurisdiction for each fiscal year, 2000 through 2006. (Note, “other” includes mostly complaints over which OCR had no jurisdiction or that were referred to another agency.) Appendix B provides a breakout of complaint receipts by jurisdiction and by jurisdiction and OCR enforcement office.
