Hi everyone! I was curious as to the demographics of PF forums, so I posted this poll on where the respective members of PF forums live. Please note -- in this poll, I am only asking which country you currently live as a permanent resident, not where you were born or raised, or what citizen you are. BTW, here is a breakdown of the definitions: 1. North America = US & Canada 2. Central America = Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama 3. Caribbean countries = all countries in the Caribbean sea, including British, French, and Dutch colonies there (such as Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Guadeloupe, Aruba). So anyone who lives in Jamaica, Barbados, Cuba, Dominican Republic, etc. are counted here. 4. South America = all South American countries + those from colonial possessions in South America such as French Guiana or the Falkland Islands 5. Northern & Western Europe = all European countries that are not counted in the list for Eastern Europe or Southern Europe. 6. Eastern Europe = Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia 7. Southern Europe = Spain, Portugal, Andorra, Italy, Malta, Greece, Albania, Montenegro, Serbia, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Turkey 8. Middle East/Western Asia & North Africa = all countries geographically in Middle East/Western Asia & North Africa (Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt). Please note that I lump the independent Caucasus countries of Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan as part of this group, but those parts of the Caucasus that are still a part of Russia (e.g. Chechnya) are not included here. 9. Africa (excluding North African countries) = all of Africa except for the countries I identified as North Africa earlier. 10. East Asia = China, Taiwan, Korea (both North & South), Japan, Taiwan 11. Southeast Asia = Myanmar (aka Burma), Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei, Indonesia, Singapore, the Philippines 12. Central Asia = Iran, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan 13. South Asia = India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, the Maldives 14. Australia & New Zealand = no explanation needed 15. Oceanic/South Pacific Island countries = all countries/dependencies in the South Pacific, including Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Guam, Samoa, Tahiti, Kiribati, Fiji, etc.
