LME Data of Citizens Receiving MH Services: 2005-2009: lots of interesting & odd data

There is a 5 year study of the LME's by NC DHHS available here:

http://www.ncdmh.net/dsis/REPORTS/PS_5year_Study_By_LME.pdf

Note that the y-axis, associated w/ 'thousands served' varies across the LME's; thus, if you're simply perusing the data line, your eye will be deceived unless you look at the numbers associated w/ the y-axis.

Western Highlands Network LME data and Smoky Mountain Center LME, the two LME's in western NC, for 'numbers of all consumers served', are in increments of 4,000 citizens for each increment of the y-axis. Contrarily, for Centerpointe LME, over in the eastern part of the state (an LME which has a troubled history as associated w/ its administration), the 'numbers of all consumers served' is in increments of 2,000 citizens for each increment of the y-axis.

CenterPointe LME: approx 40% reduction in consumers served between 2005-2009

Western Highlands LME: approx 18% reduction in consumers served between 2005-2009

Smoky Mountain Center LME: approx 32% reduction in consumers served between 2005-2009

Mecklenberg LME: approx 8% reduction in consumers served between 2005-2009.

So, does this mean that SMC & CenterPointe are doing a poorer job of addressing the concerns of consumers than Western Highlands and, for instance, Meclenberg LME?
