The Time Series: Content is adjusted to account for time lags in raw data. We adjust the time series to compensate; the dates show n generally
reflect the actual time series show n in the Time Series table. In some tables, “Yr3” denotes the “snapshot” at the end of the time series. “Yr1” is
the snapshot at the start of the time series.
