* This category was called "prevention of involuntary labor" for the data from 2009 to 2011.
** This category reflects compliance with Apple's 60-hour standard instead of relevant legal standards, including China's.
*** Since overall compliance reflects inaccurate information, such as the near-perfect scores in the freedom of association category, the figure is likely not useful.
