    That's what it was last year, population and call volume counted more in prior years since those are the two usual indicators of need. So large population and small call volume scored a little lower, smaller population and large call volume counted a little more. So even in the smaller areas if the call volume is unusually high for the area covered that helps out a bit.

    Curious as to what is considered a large or small call volume for a population of 4,500.

    Depends. Can't calculate a median until the dataset is complete. Meaning it's not done until all the apps are in. I'm sure there's a comparison over to what is in the NFIRS reporting system since that's kept up to date and accurate by us reporting our runs...
