## B. Work-years used (prior year)

539

 155,600 - 165,535    307 = 32

#### a. CE rate

The estimated fiscal year 1976 rate is 18 percent. Therefore, the rate has decreased by 2 percent when compared to fiscal year 1975 (20 percent).

155,600 ×-.02 = -3,112 cases

-3,112 cases ×130 minutes = -404,560 minutes

404,560 minutes ÷60 = 6,743 hours

-6,743 hours ÷1,750 = 3.85 work-years

#### b. GPE rate

The estimated rate in fiscal year 1976 is 20 percent. Therefore, the rate has increased by 4 percent when compared to fiscal year 1975 (16 percent).

155,600 cases ×.04 = 6,224 cases

6,244 cases ×90 minutes = 560,160 minutes

560,160 minutes ÷60 = 9,336 hours

9,336 hours ÷1,750 = +5.33 work-years

#### c. MER rate

The rate is expected to increase by 3.5 percent from fiscal year 1975 to fiscal year 1976.

155,600 cases ×.035 = 5,446 cases

5,446 cases ×15 minutes = 81,690 minutes

81,690 minutes ÷60 = 1,362 hours

1,362 hours ÷1,750 = +.77 work-years
