(1) The apparent drop in SLA holdings between 2014 and 2015 is a result of more accurate SLA tenancy information becoming available, rather than reflecting a genuine decrease
(2) The total number of holdings with rented land does not equal the sum of holdings with each tenancy type as a holding may hold more than one type of tenancy agreement
(3) Prior to 2014, the area of rented land by tenancy type is incomplete. From 2014 holdings not returning tenancy data have been estimated using the same method as for estimating the number of holdings with rented land
b break in time series
