Notes[edit]

  1. ^ It corresponds to the following formula: projection2015/projection2014x100-100.
  2. ^ It corresponds to the calculation: projection2015*annual_growth/100.
  3. ^ It corresponds to the formula: LN(2)/LN(growth/100+1), which produces exactly the same result as LOG10(2)/LOG10(growth/100+1).
  4. ^ Commonwealth of the United States since July 26, 1952.
