These data are taken from prevalence estimates taken from published epidemiological studies. Only a handful of countries have data given for them; the others use data from their closest genetic and geographic neighbors. For example, the data for all of Latin America is taken from that of Puerto Rico, as is the case of Slavic Europe with the Czech Republic and Northern Europe with nearly identical estimates from Northern Ireland and Iceland. Also, estimates that fell noticeably outside the average of approximately .47% given to the world by the WHO have been dropped, as they tended to have been taken from low sample sizes and be far away from the average. For example, Switzerland was once estimated at 6%, as was Spain at .08%.
