Estimated and actual number of hottest years on record Netherlands and Belgium 2018

The statistic displays the results of a survey conducted by Ipsos concerning the estimated and actual number of hottest years on record in the Netherlands and Belgium. In total, 17 of the past 18 years have been record breaking years for global temperatures.
The survey results suggest that as of 2018, public perception in the Netherlands and Belgium deviated significantly from the reality of global temperatures. Belgian respondents underestimated the number of hottest years in recent records by eight years, while among Dutch respondents this figure increased to ten years.

How many of the last 18 years have been the hottest for the world as a whole since they began collecting data in 1961?*
