Supplementary notes

Non-primary caring includes people younger than 15 years old which is not the case for primary caring.

Informal care is defined by the source as the unpaid care provided to older (65 years and over), dependent or disabled persons by a person with whom they have a social relationship, such as a spouse, parent, child, other relative, neighbor, friend or other non-kin connection.
