*Percentage of responses that were "4 - Usually" or "5 - Always/Almost Always" on a scale from 1 to 5.

**Beginning with the 2017 survey, statewide scores were weighted based on agency size to form a more accurate representation of the statewide workforce. Due to this change in methodology, 2017 statewide scores cannot be compared to prior years for trend analysis. The formal report includes retroactively weighted 2016 statewide scores for an evaluation of year-to-year changes.
