Methodology and Approach

 
ApproachArrow inside box = Performance trend over time
No arrow = No time trend

Hierarchy (using time trend information):
  • Arrow used if it has significance. If not, then
    • Confidence Intervals used. If not, then
      • 2% difference used. If no time trend, then
        • No arrow
Methdology

If desired direction is up:

UP ARROW = Increase in performance over the previous periods identified (moving in the “right” direction)

STRAIGHT ARROW = No increase or decrease in performance over the previous periods identified

DOWN ARROW = Decrease in performance over the previous periods identified (moving in the “wrong” direction)


If desired direction is down:

DOWN ARROW = Increase in performance over the previous periods identified (moving in the “right” direction)

STRAIGHT ARROW = There was no increase or decrease in performance over the previous periods identified.

UP ARROW = There was a decrease in performance over the previous periods identified (moving in the “wrong” direction)
Trend Arrow Assignment

ApproachColour of Box = Performance against “target”

Hierarchy
  • Colour used if there is a current target. If none, then
    • Ultimate Target or Aim Goal used. If none, then
      • Benchmark/Comparison used, if none, then
        • Grey box used

Methodology
Green: Exceeding or at* target. If no target, then at* or surpassing recognized benchmark and reasonably consistent across regions.

*At target/benchmark is defined as overlapping confidence intervals or if no confidence intervals, within (≤ 5–10%).

Yellow: Below target but approaching (based on CI or ≤10–15%) or notable regional variation or indicator that program flagged for needing provincial improvement.

Red: Below 15% of target but must take into account directionality, whether performance is improving overall, and efforts of program to improve performance.
