Don't these numbers have a margin of error? like +/- 1%?
I ask because you yourself start out, that the data is imperfect and has
reliability issues. Even under that assumption, the increase would be from
1.3% to 1.7%, an increase of 0.4% considering variables like
Wikiconference, IEP, India offices and political situation that brought a
limelight on the projects. That doesn't sound that inspiring, I hope we can
do better, I know we can.
