The largest club in the United States is the American Automobile Association [10] (+1-800-391-4AAA), known as "Triple A". In the 2000 Census, 299,948 Americans, of whom 83% were native-born, [56] specifically reported their ancestry as Spaniard. [57] However a larger amount of people, in the 2000 Census some 2,187,144 Americans reported "Spanish" as their ancestry, whether directly from Spain or not. The ranking varies depending on how two territories disputed by China and India are counted and how the total size of the United States is calculated: the CIA World Factbook gives Template:Convert/sqmi, [11] the United Nations Statistics Division gives Template:Convert/sqmi, [12] and the Encyclopedia Britannica gives Template:Convert/sqmi.

[14] The United States also possesses several insular territories scattered around the West Indies (e.g., the commonwealth of Puerto Rico ) and the Pacific (e.g., Guam ).

FIMS was administered in 1964 on 13-year-olds in 11 Western, developed countries. The latter has been growing much faster than the national population, both through continuing immigration and natural increase, and it will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. State laws enacted in the South after the Civil War enforced racial separation by keeping freed men out of skilled and industrial jobs, limited their political rights through restrictive voting registration practices, and enforced segregation at all levels, including in housing and education.
