There are methodological differences in the production of the datasets before 2005 and therefore the data for 2003 and 2004 are not directly comparable. The changes in methodology were recognised as improvements and as such the statistics from 2005 are classified as National Statistics. Details of all methodologies used to compile the statistics can be found at:
