The trading partner is the country or a collection of countries with which the trader does international trade.
The selection area is a reflection of the country classification used by Statistics Canada and the U.S. Census Bureau to tabulate trade statistics.
The country classifications used in "Trade Data Online", which are derived from ones employed by Statistics Canada and the U.S. Census Bureau, are designed for the purposes of economic geography and therefore do not reflect the views or intentions of the Government of Canada nor of the Government of the United States on international issues of recognition, sovereignty or jurisdiction.
To assist search and display in selection lists, country names appear in short form. For example, the "People's Democratic Republic of Laos" will simply appear as "Laos" for ease of use.
There are minor differences between Canadian and U.S. country classifications, mainly reflecting how a number of smaller states are treated (e.g. whether "Vatican City State" is included with "Italy" or not).

Distribution by state
This shows the breakdown by state of trade statistics between Canada and the United States.
Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands appear in the listings, even though they do not have the same status as the other 50 states and the District of Colombia (Washington D.C.).
There are a number of other territories in the world associated with the United States, which are all listed in their respective lists.
