Note(s):
Due to the confidentiality or the unreliability of data, the results for the fare type group "first class" cannot be disclosed. All estimates shown above (except those marked with the codes E and F) have a coefficient of variation of less than 10% and can be considered reliable from a sampling point of view. An E indicates a coefficient between 10% and 25%. The estimates with a coefficient of variation greater than 25% cannot be released and are shown with the code F. Estimates are subject to periodic revisions to reflect carrier updates and further refinement of the fare code assignment system.
