The percentage for the selected date range is calculated for submissions that were submitted during this date range and have received a final decision.
For example, consider the case where ten submissions were made during this date range. Four were accepted, four were rejected and two are still awaiting a final decision.
The acceptance rate will be 50% (4 of 8 submissions) because the two submissions that have not reached a final decision are not counted.
