The designations employed and the presentation of country or area names in these listings do not imply the expression of any opinion whatsoever on the part of the Secretariat of the United Nations concerning the legal status of any country, territory, city or area or of its authorities, or concerning the delimitation of its frontiers or boundaries. The user of any particular dataset should consult the dataset documentation to determine the exact coverage of statistics for the country or area entities in the dataset. Various datasets may or may not include coverage of outlying and overseas areas, depending on the type of data and source. For further information refer to Standard Country or Area Codes for Statistical use (United Nations publications, Sales No. 17.98.XVII.9), table 2, updated at ST/ESA/STAT/SER.M/49/Rev.4 http://unstats.un.org/unsd/methods/m49/m49regin.htm (17 October 2002).
\a There is no established convention for the designation of “developed” and “developing” countries or areas in the United Nations system. In common practice, Japan in Asia, Canada and the United States in northern America, Australia and New Zealand in Oceania, and Europe are considered “developed” regions.
