Although the registration year extends from July 1 of a year through June 30 of the following year, a calendar year is used to report activity in item 9 of the registration statement, "Prior-Year Survey Information." This calendar year is the twelve-month period (January 1 through December 31) immediately preceding the beginning date of the registration year (or years) for which you are filing the registration statement. You are asked to supply information on your activities in calendar year 2012 on the statement submitted for 2013-2014 (or 2013-2015, or 2013-2016). The use of the preceding calendar year in reporting activity provides a definite and verifiable (rather than speculative) basis for this section of the form.
