When 2017 data was downloaded it was obvious that areas of the complete dataset had been revised. Revised values have been included or removed for 1947-1949, 1955, 1973, 1977-1980,1989-1990, 1993-1995,1999,2006-2007 and 2010-2012. Because of these revisions the complete dataset was reloaded onto the database.
