Data represents a selection based on the availability of the same estimation method over time. In some countries more estimates might be available. In other countries data are insufficient to report.

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

The original age range for Malta in 2006 is 12 to 64 years old. There has been a significant change in data provision in Slovakia in 2008 and trend information is corrupted.
