Editions of the report prior to 2018 named the region as Europe and Eurasia, whereas the 2018 and 2019 editions of the report listed Europe and CIS separately. The 2017 and 2018 figures for these two regions have therefore have been added together. CIS is an abbreviation for the Commonwealth of Independent States.
