  • The Wikipedia article about Earth

    A subregion is a conceptual unit which derives from a larger region or continent and is usually based on location. Cardinal directions, such as south or southern, are commonly used to define a subregion.

    United Nations subregions

    Main article: United Nations geoscheme

    The Statistics Division of the United Nations (UN) is in charge of the collection, processing, and dissemination of statistical information for the UN. In 1999, it developed a system of macro-geographical (continental) regions, subregions, and other selected economic groups to report advances towards achieving numerous millennial development goals worldwide. This geoscheme was devised for statistical purposes and is used for carrying out statistical analysis. The division's first publication was the book World's Women 2000: Trends and Statistics in 2000.

    This scheme is in use by several bodies within the UN; other schemes are also used. According to the UN, these geographical divisions do not imply any assumption regarding political or other affiliations of countries or territories by the UN.
