CREATE TABLE `ds_reporting_period` (
  `ds_reporting_id` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
  `ds_reporting_start` year(4) NOT NULL,
  `ds_reporting_end` year(4) NOT NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY  (`ds_reporting_id`)

-- Dumping data for table `ds_reporting_period`

INSERT INTO `ds_reporting_period` VALUES(1, 2018, 2021);
INSERT INTO `ds_reporting_period` VALUES(4, 2015, 2017);
