The following information has been prepared for a home health agency.

 BudgetActual
Wage Rate per Hour$16.00$17.00
Fixed Hours320320
Variable Hours per Relative
Value Unit (RVU)
1.01.1
Relative Value Units (RVUs)1,0001,200
Total Labor Hours1,3201,640
Labor Costs$21,120$27,880
Cost per RVU$21.12$23.23

Budgeted costs at actual volume would be $25,344 ($21.12 × 1,200), and the total variance to be explained is $2,536 Unfavorable ($27,880 – $25,344). Be sure to specify whether the variance is favorable or unfavorable.
