However, in some cases, new information was discovered subsequent to a book's publication, in which case these tables may differ slightly from the tables in a particular year's Databook. For earlier years, information can be obtained by directly querying the Welfare Rules Database. The Databooks for earlier years can also be consulted, but any corrections to the data made after each book's publication would not be reflected.
