# Appendix B: Supporting Information for Monte Carlo Analysis

The results of the linear regression analysis that was performed on the seven model inputs are presented in charts and table in Figures B1 through B7. (Note: The FY 2002 5-year average used by FDA covers four years and not five years due to the lack of data available for FY 1997.)
