  1. ^ The data for the number of Internet users is based on multiplying an estimate for the percentage of people using the Internet in a given country from one source (usually the ITU) by the population from another source (usually the U.S. Census Bureau). There are not enough significant figures in the percentage estimate for the precise Internet user counts found in the table to be meaningful. As a result, they should not be treated as precise figures or even precise estimates.
