§ 83.07 – How should I estimate annual total PMT for the APTL option?

(a)    If your sampling plan is not based on service grouping, you should multiply your sample APTL for the entire annual sample with your corresponding annual expansion factor (i.e., 100% count of annual UPT) to get an estimate of the annual total PMT.

(b)   You should take a two-step approach if your sampling plan is based on service grouping and you have reliable 100% counts of UPT by service group:

(1)   Multiply your sample APTL with your corresponding expansion factor for each group, and

(2)   Sum the above products across all groups to get your annual total PMT.

(c)    If your sampling plan is based on service grouping but you do not have reliable 100% counts of UPT by service group, you should multiple your weighted sample APTL as computed in question §83.05 with your 100% count of annual UPT.

(d)   If your sampling plan is based on service grouping, refer to cell M52 of the PeriodInput Worksheet in the template you used in developing your template sampling plan for what you have entered into cell M52 on whether you have reliable 100% count of UPT by service group.
