 Data represents a selection based on the availablity of the same calculation method over the time. In some countries more estimates might be available. The selection was made in order for the trend to be unbiased. In some 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. 

 The original age range of studies for Finland was 15–54.
