Notes:

Methods of estimation are abbreviated: CR=Capture-recapture; TM =Treatment multiplier; PM = Police multiplier; MI = Multivariate indicator; TP= Truncated Poisson; CM = Combined methods; MM= Mortality multiplier; MME = Multiplier Method.

In case of Germany, Netherlands and Italy the line given represents an interval between the lowest lower bound of all existing estimates and the highest upper bound of them.

Target groups may vary slightly between countries owing to different methods and data sources; therefore comparisons should be made with caution.

The symbol indicates a point estimate, a bar indicates an uncertainty interval, which can be either a 95% confidence interval or an interval based on sensitivity analysis.
