Supplementary notes and material, with some refined analyses, compared to our IWC/SC/67A/EM04 May 2017 report

In this note we present an updated version of the result section in Cunen, Walløe and Hjort (2017). Compared to the report we presented last year, we have made some extensions and refinements of the FIC method, and also some moderate changes to the wide model for the JARPA data. The slight changes in the methods and in the wide model have only resulted in minor changes in the results. All five dependent variables are still significantly different from zero at the 5% Level, and all models containing the year effect clearly outperforms the models without year effect.
