IV.9: Ticket Participation Rates by States, August 2003 - Shows a bar chart showing the variation in Ticket participation rates by phase and state in August 2003. Among the 13 Phase 1 states, Delaware had the highest participation rate, 1.9 percent, followed by Vermont at 1.4 percent and Wisconsin and Illinois at 1.2 percent each. Florida, Oregon, and Massachusetts were in a virtual tie for the lowest participation rate of .3 percent. The remaining six Phase 1 states had participation rates in the range of .4 percent to 1.0 percent. As would be expected given the later rollout of the Tickets during Phase 2 relative to Phase 1, the 21 Phase 1 states (including D.C.) generally had lower participation rates in August 2003 than did their Phase 1 counterparts. South Dakota was the only Phase 1 state with a participation rate greater than 1.0 percent. Its rate was 1.2 percent. Michigan was second with a .6 percent participation rate. Seven states were in a virtual tie for the lowest participation rate of .1 percent. The remaining 12 states had rates in the .2 to .5 percent range.
