        Introduction

      • 4.4.2

    • 4.6

      Next Steps

The final phase of the project involved comparing performance levels across participating states using the common set of regulatory and beyond compliance indicators. The goals of this analysis were to: 1) establish performance levels for each state, 2) identify statistically significant differences in performance scores (differences not due to chance) and 3) explore existing compliance and beyond compliance strategies being used by states and how they may influence performance levels.

      HOW SQG PERFORMANCE WAS MEASURED

      • 4.1.1

        SQG Performance Indicators

Below are the final SQG indicators that states used to gather baseline data from field observations. The project used 8 regulatory indicators and 5 beyond compliance indicators.

Note: The first two questions on the checklist were screening/definitional questions designed to determine if a facility was an SQG.
