  1. n represents the number of target countries (and regions) in the analysis, and is the number of countries after excluding some data to increase data reliability. The numbers of countries before data exclusion were 219 for newsprint paper, 231 for printing and writing paper, 201 for sanitary paper, 203 for wrapping paper and corrugated cardboard, and 205 for other paper and paperboard. OECD represents the number of OECD member countries, and BRIICS represents the number of BRIICS (Brazil, Russian Federation, India, Indonesia, China, and South Africa) countries. N represents the total sample size
