(2) Calculate the proportionate change between these two ratios, as described in§ 283.5.
(3) Identify as potentially eligible a maximum of eight States, i.e., Guam, the Virgin Islands, and American Samoa, and five other States, that have qualifying decreases in their ratios, using the methodology described in§ 283.5;
