Technical notes on the statistical tables

As a general rule, the statistics presented in this Yearbook relate to the present territory of the geographic unit specified. Whenever the territory to which data relate is other than that defined as of 1953, footnotes have been used to describe the way in which the area differs from that within the present geographic boundaries. Thus, in the absence of a footnote, it may be assumed that the data relate to the territory within present boundaries even though they refer to a period of time when the geographic constitution of the area in question was different from the present one.
