NOTES

*Wifi use is currently a pilot metric being tested. The measurement methodology may be refined as technology systems are upgraded. Jan 2019: A minor change was made to the Wifi Usage gathering process to correct an error in 2018’s data where the 1st of the new month was being misallocated across the branches evenly. The overall total in 2019 will be lower but the percentage breakdown by branch remains unchanged. Page 6 of 6
