Indicators and Scoring System

The following indicators will be generated by the data that you enter.  The indicators are scored in a range of 0 to 3 and the total score added to give an overall score for the WUA.
 
It is not possible at the moment to provide guidance on the meaning of all the figures as there is insufficient data in the database.  Once the number of WUAs entering data has increased then it will be possible to make some better observations on the meaning of the indicators..
