Our numbers have greatly reduced due to the methods used. The performance year is 2010-2011 was done in house based on actual weights, while the comparision year use numbers from an external firm using primarily volume to weight estimates.

Also note that we didn't track anything until 2008 (published 2009) so we used the the numbers for 2008 instead of 2005.
