* The term "pending" as used in previous reports was treated as unanswered, perfected requests that were over twenty days old from date of perfection. Thus, unperfected requests or unanswered perfected requests under twenty days old were not counted as "pending" requests. Based on guidance from OIP, this definition was changed this year to include such requests.
