Background notes for historic statistics
Despite efforts made to ensure the correct presentation of the historical statistics, there may still be some anomalies. We no longer hold the required information on our database for these periods and have been reliant upon ‘hard copies produced at that time.
Please note the following:
Blank pages have been automatically removed from the documents. For example, if page 35 is followed immediately by page 37, it is likely that page 36 is a blank page.
