1. Grant Rate = (# of decisions to grant a patent)/((# of decisions of grant a patent)+(# of withdrawal and abandonment after first office action)). This definition reflects that examination in Australia generally results in one of three outcomes: acceptance, withdrawal or abandonment, but not refusal.
2. Grant Rate = (# of decisions to grant a patent) / ((# of decisions to grant a patent) + (# of decisions of refusal) + (# of withdrawal and abandonment after first office action)+(# of withdrawal and abandonment prior to first office action))
