4.1.2 How SQG Indicators were Analyzed
Data from each state were used to estimate the mean facility achievement score on “all indicators,” “regulatory indicators” and “beyond compliance indicators” and the SQG achievement rate on each individual indicator.
How Each State’s Mean SQG Facility Score was Calculated
The proportion of the performance indicators to which a particular facility is subject, which the facility achieved. This is expressed as a number from 1 to 10: A score of “1” means that the facility was achieving 10% of the applicable indicators, a score of “5” signifies that the facility achieved 50% of the applicable indicators, and a score of 10 means that the facility achieved 100% of the applicable indicators. Note: Scores can be calculated on all or a subset of indicators. For example, separate scores can be calculated for “regulatory indicators” and “beyond compliance indicators.” The scores can be calculated for each facility in each state.
How Each State’s SQG Achievement Rate on each Indicator was Calculated
The percentage of the facilities that were “achieving” (behaving in the desired way) each performance indicator (i.e., the facility was complying with the regulatory requirement or implementing the beyond compliance practice). This percentage was calculated for each applicable indicator for each state.
STATE-BY-STATE OBSERVED SQG PERFORMANCE RESULTS
4.2.1 Raw Observed SQG Performance Scores
Observed mean SQG facility scores ranged from 6.53 to 8.75 for “all indicators”, 8.85 to 9.28 for “regulatory indicators” and 1.96 to 6.44 for “beyond compliance indicators.”
