North America is a continent situated primarily in the Northern Hemisphere and mostly within the Western Hemisphere. It shares borders with the Arctic Ocean to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the east, South America and the Caribbean Sea to the southeast, and the Pacific Ocean to the west and south. Geographically, North America encompasses an expansive area of approximately 24,709,000 square kilometers (9,540,000 square miles), representing around 16.5% of the Earth’s landmass and 4.8% of its total surface area. It ranks as the third-largest continent in terms of land area, following Asia and Africa, and the fourth-largest in population, preceded by Asia, Africa, and Europe.

As of 2013, North America had an estimated population of nearly 579 million people spread across 23 independent states, accounting for approximately 7.5% of the global population. In human geography, and particularly in Canada and the English-speaking world outside the United States, the terms “North America” and “North American” may specifically refer to Canada and the United States collectively.

North America exhibits diverse regions and subregions, encompassing cultural, economic, and geographic distinctions. Economic regions emerge through trade blocs such as the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA). Linguistically and culturally, the continent can be divided into Anglo-America and Latin America. Anglo-America includes most of Northern America, Belize, and Caribbean islands with English-speaking populations, although sub-national entities like Louisiana and Quebec harbor significant Francophone populations (French being the sole official language in Quebec).

The southern part of the North American continent comprises two regions: Central America and the Caribbean. The northern part also features recognized regions. In contrast to the comprehensive definition of “North America” covering the entire continent, the term “North America” is sometimes used to refer exclusively to Mexico, Canada, the United States, and Greenland.

The term “Northern America” denotes the northernmost countries and territories in North America, namely the United States, Bermuda, St. Pierre and Miquelon, Canada, and Greenland. Although this term does not imply a unified region, Middle America—distinct from the Midwestern U.S.—encompasses Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean.

Canada and the United States, the largest countries in North America by land area, exhibit well-defined and recognized regions. In the case of Canada, these regions are Atlantic Canada, Central Canada, the Canadian Prairies, the British Columbia Coast, and Northern Canada, each containing numerous subregions. The United States, according to the definitions provided by the U.S. Census Bureau, comprises regions such as New England, the Mid-Atlantic, the South Atlantic states, the East North Central states, the West North Central states, the East South Central states, the West South Central states, the Mountain states, and the Pacific states. The Great Lakes region is an area shared by both countries. Additionally, megaregions have formed between the United States and Canada, including the Pacific Northwest and the Great Lakes Megaregion.

The United Nations officially recognizes North America as consisting of three areas: Northern America, Central America, and the Caribbean. This classification has been formally defined by the UN Statistics Division.

“Northern America,” as a distinct term from “North America,” excludes Central America, which may or may not include Mexico. However, in the specific context of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the term encompasses Canada, the United States, and Mexico—the three signatories of the treaty.

In terms of GDP per capita, North America was ranked the wealthiest continent in the world by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in October 2016, with an evaluation of $41,
