Capital:

Washington D.C

Region:

Coordinates:

38.8833° N, 77.0167° W

Total Area (km²): It includes a country's total area, including areas under inland bodies of water and some coastal waterways.

9,831,510

Population: It is based on the de facto definition of population, which counts all residents regardless of legal status or citizenship--except for refugees not permanently settled in the country of asylum, who are generally considered part of the population of their country of origin.

329,484,123 (2020)

Rural Population (% of total population): It refers to people living in rural areas as defined by national statistical offices. It is calculated as the difference between total population and urban population.

17 (2020)

GDP (current US$): It is the sum of gross value added by all resident producers in the economy plus any product taxes and minus any subsidies not included in the value of the products. It is calculated without making deductions for depreciation of fabricated assets or for depletion and degradation of natural resources.

209,366,000,000,002 (2020)

GDP Per Capita (current US$): It is gross domestic product divided by midyear population

63,543.58 (2020)

Access to Electricity (% of population): It is the percentage of population with access to electricity.

no data

Energy Imports Net (% of energy use): It is estimated as energy use less production, both measured in oil equivalents. A negative value indicates that the country is a net exporter. Energy use refers to use of primary energy before transformation to other end-use fuels, which is equal to indigenous production plus imports and stock changes, minus exports and fuels supplied to ships and aircraft engaged in international transport.

7.31 (2015)

Fossil Fuel Energy Consumption (% of total): It comprises coal, oil, petroleum, and natural gas products.

82.43 (2015)

"The Alaska Region contains the largest total potential with its slightly less than 90,000 MW of potential, which is approximately 30% of the total power potential of the United States. The Pacific Northwest Region has the second highest amount of total potential with slightly more than 76,000 MW of potential. Together these two regions contain over half (55%) of the U.S. power potential. From the perspective of the largest percentage of total power potential that has been developed, the Great Lakes Region (66%) and the Tennessee Region (37%) are particularly noteworthy with the next highest regions being the Lower Colorado (23%), Pacific Northwest (22%), South Atlantic-Gulf (21%), and California (17%)."[4]
