Annual report figure


Data are from the last survey available for each country. The European average prevalence rate was calculated as the average of the national prevalence rates weighted by national population of 15- to 34-year-olds (2007, taken from Eurostat). US and Australian data have been recalculated from original survey results to the age bands 16-34 and 14-39 years, respectively. Data for Australia refer to 2007, data for Canada and the USA to 2009. See Figure GPS-20 in the 2011 statistical bulletin for further information.
