Well, I am not a native English speaker, so I am probably wrong.
However I think that there is a difference between "Since" and "As
of".   For example,  compare
    Polar caps have been melting since 1998


   As of 1998, polar caps have been melting.

As far as I can see the first sentence means "Caps started melting in
1998 and have been melting since then",  while the second one means
"In 1998 polar caps were melting, but we did not check since then".

Good luck


Celestial navigation is based on the premise that the Earth is the center
of the universe.  The premise is wrong, but the navigation works.  An
incorrect model can be a useful tool.
