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; OT= Other methods.

Germany reported more than one estimate. For full details see Table PDU-102

In the case of Finland, the original age range of the study is 15 to 54 years old. Rates were ajusted for ages 15 to 64.

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.
