  1. Values in parentheses under each figure represent the percentage relative to the subtotal in each column
  2. In the 2008 survey, the measurement unit for the endotoxin level in the dialysate was changed from EU/L to EU/mL. The values in 2008 are considered to include many errors and are not shown here
