List of Countries by Regional Classification

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This table is used to do regional classification in a variety of contexts at the Wikimedia Foundation. Specifically it is used in conjunction with the MaxMind IP geolocation tool to group page requests. For compatibility, we use the ISO 3166 list of countries augmented by a few region names which are sometimes returned by MaxMind.

Sources[edit]

The Regional Classifications are from the International Telecommunications Union.

The Global South / North delineations are from the Strategic Plan: "For the purposes of our discussion, the Global North includes Australia, Canada, Israel, Hong Kong, Macau, New Zealand, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, the United States and all of Europe (including Russia). The Global South includes Asia (with the exception of Japan, Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan), Central America, South America, Mexico, Africa, and the Middle East (with the exception of Israel)."

Please note that in certain Wikimedia documents, per this list, Global South may be used interchangeably with "developing countries" and Global North with "developed countries".
