Cycling data through Jun 2022 (data for the TZ loss and prior requires some correction once cycgaps issues are fixed); sexskins & pcskins through Dec 2021 and backfilled through 1997 (except for Joy's and Nzige's 1997 data, which throw a lot of errors, and Acacia's 2012 + some data for Kelly in 2012, which throw mdate errors due to a failure of the code to deal properly with data subsequent to these females' cycgaps)
