A brief description of the time period from which the figures reported above are drawn (i.e. one-year time period or representative sample):

These numbers are an estimate because UG2 wasn't here for half
the year. Here are some of the factors we took into account when
trying to extrapolate from the data we have:

--July was UG2's first, so UG2 bought a greater quantity of products
(which includes products it doesn't buy on a regular basis) to
facilitate the start-up.
--During the summer and winter breaks, students are not on campus, so
the spending is lower.
--We added reducers to the soap dispensers in November to reduce the
amount of soap dispensed.
