Four Regions

Gapminder uses the same four regions and with the same colors for each of them in all our global graphs.

Our graphs often show 197 countries (and territories). The lists below show their regions.

(We use the term territories instead of countries, since Hong-Kong and Taiwan are sometimes included in our charts, and those are not recognized as states by the UN.)

If you need a table with all of them with info data on their region and other useful group memberships, download this excel file.
