* Note: the 2014 and 2016 DTA files have been created using the Stata-13 format. Long string values are stored using the new strL variable type. Consequently, the length variables for long strings are no longer required.

** Note: the 2015, 2017, 2018, and 2019 DTA files have been created using the Stata-14 format. Long string values are stored using the new strL variable type. Consequently, the length variables for long strings are no longer required.

^ Note: Serial numbers without a filing date were excluded from the 2018 update. To obtain data on the excluded serial numbers use a prior version of the dataset and filter based on a missing filing date.
