1. Note that the region of acquisition in this table is based on the current United Nations World Region classification, available at: http://millenniumindicators.un.org/unsd/methods/m49/m49regin.htm, which is a slightly different classification than used in previous reports. Caution should therefore be exercised when comparing these data with data published before 2012. Contact tmhs@phe.gov.uk for further information.
