Hi Rosie,

It look good, however I can't see any reference to time frames to 'place'

aggregated over a long period and represents the net total from successive

Some more context in this regard, as well as the capability to bound
searches by dates (at minimum financial year) would assist in making sense
of the data and help people use it effectively.
