#This script was used to identify institutions for whom we had consecutive years of data,
#i.e. a group with data from 2008 and 2007 would be returned but a group with 2009 and 2007 data would be skipped
#as the goal of this script was to identify which groups could be backfilled with the more recent year of information.
