Adjusting the Step One Base Figure with the Median Past Participation

We calculated the median past participation percentage and used that figure to adjust the Step One Base Figure by taking the average of the median past participation figure and the Step One Base Figure. This method ensures that past participation is not be given disproportionate weight.

NJDOT’s past participation for 2004 through 2007 has been 15.05%, 10.2%, 8.6% and 15.13%.The median past participation is 12.63%.

The Step One analysis resulted in a Step One Base Figure of 18.68%. The average of 18.68% and 12.63% is 15.66%.Therefore, 15.66% is the Step One Base Figure adjusted for past participation.
