latest data

Agree with Emily, when will the 2019 data be available, also is there a possibility that a cut down verson of the crash data could be uploaded up to the current date, that is if all data was not available then severity, dca, date, time, unit type could be useful to some practicioners and we would be aware that its not complete and may change.
