Almost 14,000 value changes were recorded in Volume 6. Activity was particularly heavy in Thailand and Switzerland. More than 3,500 hundred changes were recorded in Thailand and are spread throughout the listings including back-of-the-book sections. These changes, almost without exception, are increases ranging mostly from 10 percent to 20 percent, with scattered jumps of 30 percent or more.
A robust increase in the value of the Swiss franc against the dollar resulted in more than 1,700 value changes in Switzerland listings.
On the editorial side, more than 50 new listings appear in Shanghai and more than 200 new booklet listings have been added in Thailand.
