In other words, just because a PAFR mentions jobs created in the last fiscal year, it does not mean the PAFR effectively measures the performance of economic development initiatives.
Similarly, the Nevada PAFR is worthy of note for including a table of aggregate performance measures that includes historical data and goals for reducing highway fatalities, the percentage of state roads in fair or better condition, and high school graduation rates.
If the average of the top three judge's scores is 75 percent or higher, the report will be deemed to be in substantial conformance with program criteria and will receive the PAFR award recognition.

The task force did feel that more trend data should have been presented in the PAFR to round out the background discussed in the narrative.
This PAFR was appropriately titled Citizen's Report.
For example, 46 percent of the increases in the general fund during 1990, almost $22 million, was represented by "operating transfers in," unexplained in the PAFR.
Kuwait is represented by PAFR
and the Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR) and the Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences (KFAS), who have carried out the by-catch reduction project and found new technologies for fishing nets, he explained.
