NOTE 2017-06-11

I added updated spreadsheets that include data for 2015. Unfortunately, the format of the spreadsheets changed, so some changes need to be made in the notebook in order for it to use the new data. I may commit those changes here at some point, but in the meantime I thought it was important to make the new data available.
