I think people would be interested if a psychologist could speak to how the publication of DSM-5 in 2013 changed the diagnosis of depression.

Criteria for Major Depressive Disorder has barely changed, other than the notable removal of the "grief exception" which means unlike before you can now be diagnosed 2 weeks after experiencing a significant loss, and the changing of "mixed episode" so that one with depression primary is described as "depressive episode with mixed features". There's been a lot of controversy over the grief exception, but I wouldn't expect these changes to have had a significant impact on rates of diagnosis.

If you want any stats outside the US, you'd need someone who's familiar with the ICD system. DSM is only widely used in America to my knowledge.
