    @edmcdonagh, do you think that we should calculate the median value for the exports, rather than the mean?

    Bother - you've caught me being inconsistent!

    Having looked at what I did before, I'm reminded that I think the value should really be the mean. I went with median in our previous discussion due to the power of a zero value to alter the mean. Now I don't know what to go with.

    I think what I really want (and probably what people would guess the value is) is mean after excluding zeros.
