I found it interesting that of the 1068 methods in your list, only the 
top 81 have been rung 15 times or more, approximating to once a year. I 
would not expect that adding in the handbell totals would make a huge 
difference, and the list leaves out methods rung in spliced 
compositions. (No, I am not asking you to analyse those as well!). Is it 
a fairly graphic illustration of conservatism among ringers?
