61.2. Rigorous comparability option

Suppose a biologist wants to construct data sets from CBC data, and the biologists selected the lumped-year presentation, in which multiple circles in the same year are combined into a single data column.

If the biologist wants to perform defensible stastical analyses on such data, it might matter whether the exact same set of circles were worked in each year.

If this is a problem, we could a checkbox labeled Rigorous comparability: display only years when all selected circles were counted. If this is checked and multiple circles are selected and some of those circles were counted in the same year, then the report generator will discard years when all the selected circles were not counted.
