cDue to a reorganisation process in public administration (formation of districts), the data deriving from the data collection on guardianship authorities for the year 2012 refer to the period between 1 January and 1 December 2012. The reference date is 1 December instead of 31 December as used in previous years. As a consequence, the comparability of time series data is limited.
