Supplementary notes
* Total ransom data compiled by author.
According to the source, the authors tracked and accounted for each individual ransom paid in 2011 (where data was available). The statistic lists ransom payments for hijacked vessels in 2011. Note that some of these vessels were hijacked in 2010, but were not released until 2011. The authors included all ransoms paid in 2011 in order to analyze the 2011 ‘ransom price’ market.
