United Nations geoscheme


United Nations geoscheme

.

The scheme was devised for statistical purposes and is used for carrying out statistical analysis. The macro-geographical regions are arranged to the extent possible according to continents. Within these groupings, smaller, geographical sub-regions and selected economic and other groupings allow for detailed analysis.

According to the UN, these geographical divisions do not imply any assumption regarding political or other affiliations of countries or territories by the UN.__TOC__
