Normalization criteria to shift or scaled the measurement, where the intention is that these normalized values allow the comparison of corresponding normalized values for different datasets.
|List Options||Option Definition||Unit of Measure|
|National median||Intended to serve as a comparison metric to show the relative performance in a population- 50% of properties perform below the median, and 50% perform above the median.||None|
|Regional median||Intended to serve as a comparison metric to show the relative performance in a regional population- 50% of properties perform below the median, and 50% perform above the median.||None|
|Not applicable||Not applicable||None|
|Adjusted to specific year||The expected value if the new operations were revised to reflect the operations in a specific year||None|
|Weather normalized||The expected value, if the current year weather conditions were revised to reflect 30-year average weather conditions. This weather normalized value can be used to understand changes in energy to account for changes in weather.||None|
