EU15: 1989-2005; EFTA: 1989-2004; EU10: 1992-2005; SEE: 1989-1995, and EECCA: 1991-1995. Comparison of figures related to the newer EU Member States (EU10) before and after their EU membership is open to potential errors because of the different reporting mechanisms applied over the two periods. Regarding &#39;power&#39;, there is no EU10 bar as data only exists for two years (2004-2005).
