Data notes and analysis:

  1. In 2014, we reorganized our operations into five regional business units: Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, South America, and Middle East & Africa. Data for Asia Pacific has been restated for all years to remove Middle East and Africa data, which is now being provided separately.
  2. In 2014, the training and assessment data was been updated to reflect a consistent calculation methodology. Data prior to 2014, have also been updated to reflect this calculation methodology.
