Other yearly periods are specifically indicated. The range of years shown in the table headings, for example, 1901 to 1998-99, indicates the period covered, but does not necessarily imply that each intervening year is included or that the yearly period has remained the same throughout the series.

Where figures have been rounded, discrepancies may occur between sums of the component items and totals.
