*Please be aware that the way activity information is collected in the IVS changed on 1 July 2013. The change in collection method has caused a discontinuity in the time series data, so take care when comparing periods before 1 July 2013 to latter periods. Changes between these periods will reflect both real changes in activity levels and changes in collection method.
