Changes to data collection/processing

Before November 2018, the travel purpose of New Zealand-resident travellers was based on departure card responses and linked to the correspondent arrival card via the passport number.
From November 2018, they are based on arrival card responses. This results in different patterns in purpose of travel. The two series should not be compared.
