General Notations

Note:

  • Data are considered to be accurate at time of presentation.
  • A fiscal year of data represents the period from April 1 to March 31.
  • Only reporting units with established recording methodology are included in the report.
 

Visitor attendance data does not include external programming activities such as visitation to schools, presentations to the public, etc. Trends in visitor data must be interpreted with caution. Significant fluctuations in volume can be attributed to many ad hoc factors such as flooding, fire, special events and weather extremes. These external factors should be taken into consideration before determining if a variation is statistically significant.
