  4. The review should seek to answer the following questions:
  • What are the main intended uses of more detailed TNE data? What published form(s) should it take?
  • What measures should we take to reduce or avoid duplication between the AOR and other data collections about TNE?
  • What data do we now require about TNE and is there sufficient justification for collecting it?
  • What concepts (if any) need to be developed to help make better sense of TNE?
  • What is the most appropriate collection mechanism for the required data?
