1Results for the IPIA reporting year are based on Benefit Accuracy Measurement (BAM) data for the 12-month period ending June 30 of the IPIA reporting year. For 2014, and beyond, the Annual Report Rate excludes overpayments determined to be "technically proper" under state UI law.

22010 estimates exclude Georgia BAM data, which could not be included due to coding and methodology issues, which were subsequently resolved.

3Annual Report Rate for 2013 included an offset for recovered overpayments.

* As of 2015, the Operational Rate is no longer being reported as a supplemental measure for IPIA.
