The following symbols have been used throughout this paper:

… to indicate that data are not available;

—to indicate that the figure is zero or less than half the final digit shown, or that the item does not exist;

- between years or months (e.g., 1991–92 or January-June) to indicate the years or months covered, including the beginning and ending years or months;

/ between years (e.g., 1991/92) to indicate a crop or fiscal (financial) year.

“Billion” means a thousand million.

Minor discrepancies between constituent figures and totals are due to rounding.

The term “country,” as used in this paper, does not in all cases refer to a territorial entity that is a state as understood by international law and practice; the term also covers some territorial entities that are not states, but for which statistical data are maintained and provided internationally on a separate and independent basis.
