1 Survey reference dates were: Oct. 1, 1997-2000, March 29, 2002, and March 31, 2003. See Appendix C for changes in the survey base, methods, and instruments that affect
analysis of trends over time.
2 Numbers and proportions are lower in the 2003 survey because the question concerning specially designed treatment programs or groups was changed to distinguish between
those facilities that accepted specific client types and those facilities that had specially designed programs or groups for that client type.
