Inline Data Tables provided by FancyGrid: Aria role attributes are not properly applied to the cells of the FancyGrid table. The table can be downloaded as a CSV or Excel and includes an accessibility description. We rely on a complex third party component with functions closer to "software" than a "website" for this content but are working with the third party developer to improve the accessibility features of the Inline Data Tables provided by FancyGrid. Please use the download buttons directly beneath the table for more direct use of the data.
