  1. aMissing responses (i.e., item nonresponse) were excluded at the question level, and summary statistics were calculated using only the actual responses for each individual survey question. For any question where less than all 16 participating CCs responded, the total number of item-level responses is provided in the first column
  2. bN/A indicates that “In development or under consideration” was not a response option
