  1. Hi Arthur,

    I will try to play to this game. I’m currently going through the provided data.
    I have merged the Insee codes of the production database into the communes database and have lost 596 profiles amoung 100.000.
    As an example, the 01440 Insee code doesn’t exist anymore according to the INSEE and in the commune database but can be found in the production one.
    Have a done a mistake or is there an issue in the production database.

    Kind regards,

    Should this instead read ‘year 1’? The company for year 0 is not anywhere defined.
