Explanatory Notes — North America
The following countries or territories are included in this region (listed in alphabetical order):
- United States
- "Puerto Rico" and the "U.S. Virgin Islands" are included as part of the United States (see U.S. states).
- The country classifications used in "Trade Data Online", which are derived from ones employed by Statistics Canada and the U.S. Census Bureau, are designed for the purposes of economic geography and therefore do not reflect the views or intentions of the Government of Canada nor of the Government of the United States on international issues of recognition, sovereignty or jurisdiction.
- To assist search and display in selection lists, country names appear in short form. For example, the "People's Democratic Republic of Laos" will simply appear as "Laos" for ease of use. Similarly, the "Republic of Korea" will appear as "Korea, South" in the list and so on.
- There are minor differences between Canadian and U.S. country classifications, mainly reflecting how a number of smaller states are treated (e.g. whether "Vatican City State" is included with "Italy" or not).
