Data collected via Wikipedia.
British is described as players from England, Scotland, Northern Ireland or Wales.
From 1956-2006 the award was specifically voted for by football journalists. In 2008, coaches and captains of the National Teams were given a chance to vote but this was limited in 2022 to include only countries within the Top 100 of the FIFA Rankings.
The points total is decided based on the votes whereby each voter had to pick their rankings and each position they picked were assigned points. The same is true when the points were broadcast as percentages instead. If players are tied on the same points this is represented in the table.
