Notes and corrections

  1. (3 Feb 2017) PDF updated—Minor corrections to the numbers reported in this fact sheet. Although comprehensive data checking was performed, some records of people who have died were included in the prevalence due to an error in the code used for this complex analysis. These corrections were minor and do not change the main messages of the fact sheet.
