Go to the Index in Volume Two of the latest year. You can search by product name (tissues), brand name (Scotties) or company name (Scott Paper).  The index listing will have the entry numbers where your product can be found.  If the latest year doesn't have your product, look in earlier years.  You can then use industry growth numbers to calculate estimated changes.
