Supplementary notes

* The source adds the following information regarding the term 'full-rate':

"A combination of paid paternity leave and paid parental leave reserved exclusively for fathers. Unpaid leave is not included. As with mothers, full-rate equivalent leave for fathers is expressed as the number of weeks of leave multiplied by the payment rate for a father receiving average earnings for that country."
