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

This data is from Office Depot's annual report, provided by Julie Wetzel. Office Depot only breaks down the recycled content into 5 departments including a 30-89 percent recycled content. Therefore the total of that category was evenly distributed between 3 categories above (30-49 percent, 50-69 percent, and 70-89 percent).
