I meant to say that the quarterly report can be extrapolated, not monthly

This may be overly simplistic, but public companies must report once every quarter. Just change the report from monthly to quarterly - data can be extrapolated based on previous reports, new equipment purchases, supply purchases etc.

It was nice to have that information while it lasted. I don't blame them for not wanting to continue to share their proprietary information.

Reminds me of the old adage: Garbage In = Garbage Out. More correctly, it is a reminder to take all studies and surveys and statistics information with a healthy dose of skepticism UNLESS you know the real constituents of the data. Without the data constituent knowledge, you can only extrapolate gross trends.
