Some key areas are < 1 year old and many areas are <2 years, based on
personal experience of N. VA, DC, Las Vegas, etc. It's probably

there are fairly standard deals to buy copies of that data, although
making the first deals to make it available in such widespread ways must
have been tough and expensive.
